What Our Father Does Is Well
Benjamin Schmolck, 1720; German text
|What our Father does is well:|
Blessed truth His children tell!
Though He send, for plenty, want,
Though the harvest-store be scant,
Yet we rest upon His love,
Seeking better things above.
2. What our Father does is well,
|3. What our Father does is well,|
Though He sadden hill and dell,
Upward yet our praises rise
For the strength His Word supplies.
He has called us sons of God;
Can we murmur at His rod?
4. What our Father does is well,
|5. Therefore unto Him we raise|
Hymns of glory, songs of praise,
To the Father and the Son
And the Spirit, Three in One,
Honor, might, and glory be
Now and through eternity.
