Lord, My Weak Thought in Vain Would Climb

  1. Lord, my weak thought in vain would climb
    to search the starry vault profound;
    in vain would wing her flight sublime
    to find creation’s utmost bound.
  2. But weaker yet that thought must prove
    to search thy great eternal plan,
    thy sov’reign counsels, born of love
    long ages ere the world began.
  3. When my dim reason would demand
    why that, or this, thou dost ordain,
    by some vast deep I seem to stand,
    whose secrets I must ask in vain.
  4. When doubts disturb my troubled breast,
    and all is dark as night to me,
    here, as on solid rock, I rest—
    that so it seemeth good to thee.
  5. Be this my joy, that evermore
    thou rulest all things at thy will;
    thy sov’reign wisdom I adore,
    and calmly, sweetly, trust thee still.
