1 Lord, you have weaned my heart from pride,
my eyes from scorn are free;
no longer am I occupied
with thoughts too high for me.

2 Contented now, and reconciled,
secure from all alarms,
my heart is quiet as a child
safe in its mother's arms.

3 O set your hope on Israel's God,
all you that know his name:
now and for ever trust the Lord,
eternally the same!
