Anna Laetitia Waring Poems
Father, I Know That All My Life
"My times are in Thy hand." -- Psalm XXXI.15 Father, I know that all my life
In Heavenly Love Abiding
In heavenly love abiding, no change my heart shall fear. And safe in such confiding, for nothing changes here. The storm may roar without me, my heart may low be laid, But God is round about me, and can I be dismayed?
My Heart Is Resting, O My Lord
My heart is resting, O my God— I will give thanks and sing; My heart is at the secret source Of every precious thing.
Tender mercies, on my way Falling softly like the dew, Sent me freshly every day, I will bless the Lord for you.
To the Superior Animal
To sum up all, I'm old -- and that's A fact the years decide; It is a common thing with cats And not a thing to hide.
Go Not Far From Me, O My God
Go not far from me, O my God, Whom all my times obey; Take from me anything Thou wilt, But go not Thou away,
O, This Is Blessing, This Is Rest
O, this is blessing, this is rest Unto Thine arms, O Lord, I flee: I hide me in Thy faithful breast, And pour out all my soul to Thee.
A New-Year Hymn
Sunlight of the heavenly day, Mighty to revive and cheer, Bless our yet untrodden way, Lead us through the entered year.
My Savior, on the Word of Truth
My Savior, on the word of truth In earnest hope I live; I ask for all the precious things Thy boundless love can give.
Jesus, Lord Of Heaven Above
Jesus, Lord of Heaven above, Earth beneath is all Thy own In the depths of Heavenly love Let my human heart be sown.
Dear Savior Of A Dying World
Dear Savior of a dying world, Where grief and change must be, In the new grave where Thou wast laid
A New Year's Morning Song
Thanksgiving and the voice of melody, This new year's morning, call me from my sleep; A new, sweet song is in my heart for Thee,
Though Some Good Things Of Lower Worth
Though some good things of lower worth My heart is called on to resign,
Sweet Is The Solace Of Thy Love
Sweet is the solace of Thy love, My Heavenly Friend, to me,

Father, I Know That All My Life
"My times are in Thy hand." -- Psalm XXXI.15
Father, I know that all my life
Is portioned out for me,
And the changes that are sure to come,
I do not fear to see;
But I ask Thee for a present mind
Intent on pleasing Thee.
I ask Thee for a thoughtful love,
Through constant watching wise,
To meet the glad with joyful smiles,
And to wipe the weeping eyes;
And a heart at leisure from itself,

Or secret thing to ...
