Poem


Submission

William Cowper (1731–1800)


O Lord, my best desire fulfill And help me to resign, Life, health, and comfort to thy will, And make thy pleasure mine.

Why should I shrink at thy command, Whose love forbids my fears? Or tremble at the gracious hand That wipes away my tears?

No, let me rather freely yield What most I prize to thee; Who never hast a good withheld, Or wilt withhold from me.

Thy favor, all my journey through, Thou art engaged to grant; What else I want, or think I do, 'Tis better still to want.

Wisdom and mercy guide my way, Shall I resist them both? A poor blind creature of a day, And crushed before the moth.

But ah! my inward spirit cries, Still bind me to thy sway; Else the next cloud that veils my skies, Drives all these thoughts away.


To Pray for

  • The courage to face whatever happens in life.

  • All those injured and the families of lost ones after two passenger trains collided in the Czech Republic.

  • All of our teachers in what has been a difficult and testing time for them during the pandemic, hope they can rest and recover ahead of the new academic year.
