Hymn : TLH 521 st. 1,4: What God Ordains Is Always Good Hymnary.org link

1. What God ordains is always good; 
His will abideth holy. 
As He directs my life for me, 
I follow meek and lowly. 
God indeed in every need 
Doth well know how to shield me; 
To Him, then, I will yield me. 

4. What God ordains is always good. 
He is my Friend and Father; 
He suffers naught to do me harm, 
Though many storms may gather. 
Now I may know Both joy and woe, 
Some day I shall see clearly 
That He hath loved me dearly.
