Last Line: Beneath his wing's propitious shade.
Subject(s): Pain; Religion; Suffering; Misery; Theology

Since 'tis God's will, Pain, take your course,
Exert on me your utmost force --
I well God's truth and promise know.
He never sends a woe,
But His supports divine
In due proportion with the affliction join.

Though I am frailest of mankind,
And apt to waver as the wind --
Though me no feeble bruised reed
In weakness can exceed --
My soul on God relies,
And I your fierce, redoubled shocks despise.

Patient, resigned, and humble wills
Impregnably resist all ills.
My God will guide me by His light,
Give me victorious might:
No pang can me invade
Beneath His wing's propitious shade.
