[Alternative Tunes Nos. 143, 150.] IN the hour of trial,
Should Thy mercy send me I JESUS, think of me,
Sorrow, toil, and woe; Lest by base denial
Or should pain attend me I depart from Thee.
On my path below; When Thou seest me waver,
Grant that I may never With a look recall,
Fail Thy hand to see, Nor for fear or favour
Grant that I may ever Suffer me to fall.
Cast my care on Thee. With its witching pleasures
When to dust and ashes Should this vain world charm,
In death's arms I sink, All its tempting treasures
While Heaven's glory flashes Spread to work me harm,
O’er the shelving brink. ; Bring to my remembrance
On Thy strength relying Sad Gethsemane,
Through that mortal strife, Or, in darker semblance,
LORD, receive me, dying, Cross-crowned Calvary.
To Eternal Life. Amen.
FROM Egypt's bondage come,
There sin and sorrow cease, T Where death and darkness reign, And all the strife is o'er ; We seek our new, our better home,
There we shall dwell in endless peace, Where we our rest shall gain.
And never hunger more.
There in celestial strains We haste with songs of joy,
The ransomed captives sing ; Where peace and liberty are found,
There love in every bosom reigns,
For God Himself is King.
We are travelling home to heaven!
It cheers the pilgrim's breast,
