II. “My spirit on Thy care”
By Henry Francis Lyte (1793–1847)
 
(Psalm xxxi.)

  MY spirit on Thy care,
  Blest Saviour, I recline;
Thou wilt not leave me to despair,
  For Thou art Love divine.
 
  In Thee I place my trust,        5
  On Thee I calmly rest;
I know Thee good, I know Thee just,
  And count Thy choice the best.
 
  Whate’er events betide,
  Thy will they all perform;        10
Safe in Thy breast my head I hide,
  Nor fear the coming storm.
 
  Let good or ill befall,
  It must be good for me;
Secure of having Thee in all        15
  Of having all in Thee.
