The following 2 verses are an excerpt from the poem entitled "Submission" by John Bates.

I know what God appoints is best
Therefore I’ll not repine
For he is God and cannot err
Infinite and Divine

With humble meekness I’ll submit
Before him lowly fall
Be thou my Jesus and my strength
My Saviour and my all
