ANDERNACH. L. M. (Rex gloriose Martyrum ?)*
The firmament, His mighty frame.
• From • Spiritual Songs of the Brotherhood of St. Cecilia,' Andernach, 1608.
With all the blue ethereal sky,
Soon as the evening shades prevail,
(1. 6; 7. 9.) N. V. THE Lord to thy request attend,
And hear thee in distress; The Name of Jacob's God defend,
And grant thy arms success. Our hopes are fix'd, that now the Lord
Our sov’reign will defend ; From heaven
resistless aid afford,
On chariots some rely;
The power of God most high.
Our rightful cause to bless ; Hear, King of heaven, in times of need, The prayers that we address,
(1, 2. 10, 11.) N. V. My God, my God, why leav’st Thou me
When I with anguish faint ? O why so far from me removed,
And from my loud complaint ?
To Thee do I complain;
But cry all night in vain.
My helpless infant days; [wrongs And since hast been my God and guide
Through life's bewilder'd ways.
When trouble is so nigh;
I only can rely.
ST. STEPHEN's, or NAYLAND. C. M.
'1.-(1, 2, 3. 5) 0. V. MY Shepherd is the living Lord,
Nothing therefore I need :
He setteth me to feed.
And bring my mind in frame,
For His most holy Name,
Yet will I fear no ill:
And Thou art with me still.
So frankly show'd to me, That in Thy house for evermore My dwelling-place shall be.
II.-(1, 2, 3, 4. 6.) THE THE Lord Himself, the mighty Lord,
Vouchsafes to be my Guide;
My wants are all supplied,
And gently there repose;
Refreshing water flows.
And, to His endless praise,
In His most righteous ways. I pass
the gloomy vale of death, From fear and danger free; For there His aiding rod and staff
Defend and comfort me. Since God does thus His wondrous love
Through all my life extend, That life to Him I will devote,
And in His temple spend.
