1. Quiet, Lord, my froward heart,
    Make me teachable and mild,
Upright, simple, free from art,
    Make me as a weaned child:
From distrust and envy free,
    Pleased with all that pleases thee.

2. What thou shalt today provide,
    Let me as a child receive,
What tomorrow may betide,
    Calmly to thy wisdom leave;
‘Tis enough that thou wilt care,
    Why should I the burden bear?

3. As a little child relies
    On a care beyond his own;
Knows he’s neither strong nor wise,
    Fears to stir a step alone;
Let me thus with thee abide,
    As my Father, Guard, and Guide.
