Hymn of a Spirit shrouded
By Ellen Sturgis Hooper (1812–1848)
O GOD, who, in thy dear still heaven,
  Dost sit, and wait to see
The errors, sufferings, and crimes
  Of our humanity,
How deep must be thy causal love!        5
  How whole thy final care!
Since Thou, who rulest over all,
  Canst see, and yet canst bear.
