For What His Love Denies

by Fanny Crosby


God does not give me all I ask,
Nor answer as I pray,
But O, my cup is brimming o'er
With blessings day by day.
How oft the joy I tho't withheld,
Delights my longing eyes.
And so I thank him from my heart
For what His love denies.

Sometimes I miss a treasured link
From friendship's hallowed chain,
And yet His smile is my reward
For ev'ry throb of pain.
I look beyond where purer joys,
Delights my longing eyes.
And so I thank Him from my heart
For what His love denies.

How tenderly He leadeth me
When earthly hopes are dim
And when I falter by the way
He bids me lean on Him.
He lifts my soul above the clouds
Where friendship never dies,
And so I thank Him from my heart
For what His love denies.
