This is the text of this hymn as it appears in Church Hymns (1871) where it is listed as a hymn for Times of Trouble [Scarcity]:
Thou that sendest sun and rain,
Ruling over land and sea,
May we ne’er of Thee complain,
Ne’er, whate’er our lot may be.
Whether sun or rain in turn
Ripen or destroy the grain,
May we still this lesson learn—
Ne’er to murmur or complain.
Fewer flocks or fewer herds,
Scanty though our store may be,
Still we seem to hear the words,
‘Trust, ye faithful, trust in Me.’
All we have we know is Thine,
Thine to give and take away;
Feed us then with food Divine,
Feed us this and every day.
Thus, as changeful seasons bring,
Wealth or want, whiche’er it be,
Uncomplaining still we’ll sing,
Simply trusting all to Thee. Amen.
Words: Godfrey Thring, 1862.
Tune (Church Hymns): “St. Chrysostom” Henry J. Gauntlett, 1876.
