Thou Hidden Source of Calm Repose

Charles Wesley, 'Thou Hidden Source of Calm Repose':
Jesus, my all in all thou art
My rest in toil, my ease in pain
The healing of my broken heart
In war my peace, in loss my my gain
My smile beneath the tyrant's frown
In shame my glory, and my crown

In want my plentiful supply
In weakness my almighty power
In bonds my perfect liberty
My light in Satan's darkest hour
In grief my joy unspeakable
My life in death, my heaven in hell
Is there anything more wonderful, more stabilizing, in life? Anything?
