Master, how shall I bless Thy name

1
Master, how shall I bless Thy name
  For love so great to me,
For sweet enablings of Thy grace,
  So sov’reign, yet so free,
That taught me to obey Thy word,
  And cast my care on Thee?
2
No anxious thought upon thy brow
  The watching world should see;
No carefulness! O child of God,
  For nothing careful be!
But cast thou all thy care on Him
  Who always cares for thee.
3
How shall I praise Thee, Savior dear,
  For this new life so sweet,
For taking all the care I laid
  At Thy beloved feet,
Keeping Thy hand upon my heart
  To still each anxious beat?
4
I long to praise Thee more, and yet
  This is no care to me;
If Thou shalt fill my mouth with songs
  Then I shall sing to Thee;
And if my silence praise Thee best,
  Then silent I will be.
5
Yet if it be Thy will, dear Lord,
  Oh, send me forth to be
Thy messenger to careful hearts,
  To bid them taste, and see
How good Thou art to those who cast
  All all their care on Thee.

At the time of the birth (1953) of my sister Susan, the second verse of this hymn brought peace to my mother.

At Susans death (1958) the fifth verse was an inspiration for her as well as the entire family.

Thanks for sharing!
