All Things Decreed

There’s not a sparrow nor a worm
But’s found in God’s decrees;
He raises monarchs to their thrones,
And sinks them if he please.

If light attend the course I run,
’Tis he provides those rays;
And ’tis his hand that hides my sun,
If darkness cloud my days.

When he reveals the Book of Life,
O may I read my name
Among the chosen of his love,
The followers of the Lamb!
- Isaac Watts
