No. 31 God is Watching

Verse 1:
Oh, be careful, ever careful
What you’re choosing in your heart,
Seeking this or that thing only,
Willing for no other part,

He is watching, ever watching,
Knowing what is best for thee;
Then accept it sweetly, gladly,
Whatsoever it may be.

Verse 2:
You will never, surely never,
Turn away from this, His choice,
Could you only hear the offer
In His tender, loving voice.

Verse 3:
You would grieve at the refusal
Of His gift whate’er it be,
Did you hear Him sadly saying,
“But they have rejected me.”

M.W. Snodgrass/W. Irving Hartshorn
