Feelest thou disquiet, care, unrest - Give Me thine Heart
(Charlotte Elliott/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Give Me thine Heart.

Proverbs 23,26.

1. Feelest thou disquiet, care, unrest,
  scarce knowing why so sad thou art?
In God alone can man find rest:
          give him thine heart.

2. Deemest thou thy bosom's secret woes
  peculiar, from all else apart?
Thy case he intimately knows:
          give him thine heart.

3. Oft doth the painful thought arise,
  that, slighted, misconceived, thou art?
God knows thee, loves, will not despise:
          give him thine heart.

4. Sailest thou alone o'er life's rough sea,
  without a home, a friend, a chart?
Thy friend, guide, haven, God will be:
          give him thine heart.

5. Dost thou some hopeless sorrow feel,
  some wound from Death's unpitying dart?
Thy God will bind it up, and heal:
          give him thine heart.

6. Are there some griefs thou canst not tell,
  not to the dearest friends impart?
Thy God will understand them well:
          give him thine heart.

7. Oh! when without reserve 'tis given,
  wholly surrendered, every part,
there shines within the dawn of heaven:
          give him thine heart.
