O Thou from Whom All Goodness Flows

Melody - "St. Bernard", from Tochter Zion, Cologne, 1741; Seq. by Richard Jordan

Thomas Haweis, 1791

O Thou from whom all goodness flows,
I lift my heart to Thee;
In all my sorrows, conflicts, woes,
Dear Lord, remember me.

2. When on my poor and burdened heart
My sins lie heavily,
Thy pardon speak, new peace impart;
Dear Lord, remember me.

3. When trials sore obstruct my way
And ills I cannot flee,
Oh, let my strength be as my day;
Lord, remember me.

4. If for Thy sake upon my name
Shame and reproach shall be,
All hail reproach and welcome shame!
Good Lord, remember me.

5. If worn with pain, disease, or grief
This feeble body be:
Grant patience, rest, and kind relief;
Dear Lord, remember me.

6. When in the solemn hour of death
I wait Thy just decree,
Be this the prayer of my last breath:
Dear Lord, remember me.

7. And when before Thy throne I stand
And lift my soul to Thee,
Then with the saints at Thy right hand,
Dear Lord, remember me.
