My soul hath gone too far astray ;
My feet too often slip :
Restore thy wand'ring sheep.
'Tis a delightful road: Nor let my head, nor heart, nor hands,
Offend against my God. 340
Portugal New. COMPASSIONATE Bridegroom, my Shep
herd and Friend, Thy child from the fury of satan defend ; Thy presence continue, thy blessing convey, And grant me a spirit to praise and to pray. Prevent and assist me,
and so shall I run; And further and finish the good work begun; And then though the world should reject and
despise, Thy grace for my wants, Lord, shall ever
suffice. Still go thou before me, O guide me aright; Thy love be my comfort, thy self my delight; Thy will be my pleasure, thy honour my aim, And this be my glory, the blood of the Lamb. Thy self be my portion, thy beauty my song, Thy name and thy praises still dwell on my
tongue ; Direct by thy Spirit, my actions and ways, So shall I inherit thy blessing always.

Grant us, Lord, a gracious rain;
Lord, revive us,

Turn the stony heart to flesh,
Lord revive us, &c. 342 wwwananna

The chief of sinners I: Take, O take me as I am,
And let me lose myself in thee; Friend of sinners, &c.
Unsustain'd by thee, I fall:
Mount Calvary. O THOU! from whom all goodness flows,
I lift my heart to thee,
Dear Lord, remember me.
My sins lie heavily ;
In love remember me.
And ills I cannot flee;
For good remember me.
This feeble body see;
Hear and remember me.
Shame and reproaches be ;
