Saturday Synaxis

My spirit to Thy care, blest Savior, I resign;
Thou wilt not leave me to despair, for Thou art love divine.
In Thee I place my trust, on Thee I calmly rest,
I know Thee good, I know Thee just, and count Thy choice the best.
Whatever things betide, Thy will they must perform;
Safe in Thy shelter I abide, nor fear the coming storm.
Let good or ill befall, it must be good for me,
Secure of having Thee in all, of having all in Thee.

#449 of The Augustine Hymn Book, 19th cent.
