Lyrics

Let nothing ever grieve thee, distress thee, nor fret thee; heed God's go,Od will, my soul, be still, compose thee.
Why bro,Od all day in sorrow? tomorrow will bring thee God's help benign and grace sublime in mercy.
Be true in all endeavor, and ever do bravely; what God decrees brings joy and peace, He'll stay thee.
Amen.
