412 (C.M.) Isaac Watts

Jesus, the man of constant grief,

A mourner all His days —

His spirit once rejoiced aloud,

And turned His joy to praise:

"Father, I thank Thy wondrous love,

That hath revealed Thy Son

To men unlearnèd, and to babes

Hath made Thy gospel known.

The myst'ries of redeeming grace

Are hidden from the wise,

While pride and carnal reas'nings join

To swell and blind their eyes.

Thus doth the Lord of heav'n and earth

His great decrees fulfill,

And orders all His works of grace

By His own sov'reign will.
