O Thou from Whom All Goodness Flows - #515

"O Thou from Whom All Goodness Flows"
by Thomas Haweis, 1732-1820

1. 0 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 worn with pain, disease, or grief
This feeble body be:
Grant patience, rest, and kind relief;
Dear Lord, remember me.

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

6. 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.
