All My Life is Portioned Out by Thee

“Father, I know that all my life

Is portioned out by thee,

And the changes that will surely come

I do not fear to see;


But I ask Thee for a present mind,

Intent on serving Thee.

I would not have the restless will

That hurries to and fro,


Seeking for some great thing to do,

Or secret thing to know;

I would be treated as a child,

And guided where I go.”


Thus, brother, “go thou thy way till the end be;”

and “thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.”
