Quiet Lord my forward heart
Quiet, Lord, my forward heart,
Make me teachable and mild,
Upright, simple, free from art,
Make me as a
From distrust and envy free,
Pleased with all that pleases Thee.
What Thou shalt today provide,
me as a child receive;
What tomorrow may betide,
Calmly to Thy wisdom leave:
’Tis enough that Thou wilt care,
Why should I the burden
As a little child relies
On a care beyond his own;
Knows he’s neither strong nor wise,
Fears to stir a step
Let me thus with Thee abide,
As my Father, Guard, and Guide.
Thus preserved from Satan’s wiles,
Safe from dangers,
free from fears;
May I live upon Thy smiles,
Till the promised hour appears;
When the sons of God shall prove
All their Father’s boundless
Words: John Newton (1779)
