3 But when thy boundless grace shall me
To thy lov'd courts restore,
And humbly there adore.
His blessing will extend, And with his favour all his saints, : As with a shield, defend.
Prayer in spiritual distress. 1 GENTLY, gently lay thy rod
On my sinful head, o God:
Lest I sink before its sway.
Heal me, for thy grace I seek;
Shall proclaim thy power to save ?
Speak, and I shall rise and live.
Lo! He comes ! the shadows flee!
I will my heart prepare;
Thy wondrous works, declare.
2 The thought of them shall to my soul
Exalted pleasure bring ; Whilst to thy Name, O Thou Most High,
Triumphant praise I sing.
3 All those who have his goodness prov'd
Will in his truth confide;
That on his help relied.
4 Sing praises, therefore, to the Lord,
From Sion, his abode ;
Confess no other God.
5 To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God whom we adore, Be glory; as it was, is now,
And shall be evermore,
God our defence.
My firm affection, Lord, to Thee;
2 Thou my deliv’rer art, my God,
3 To heaven I made my mournful prayer,
To God address'd my humble moan;
4 Let the eternal Lord be prais'd,
The rock on whose defence I rest;
5 Therefore to celebrate his fame
God our defence.
Of force I must love Thee;
In my necessity.
I prayed to God for grace ;
Out of his holy place.
And bow'd the heavens most high ;
The darkness of the sky. 4 On cherubim and seraphim
Full royally He rode,
Came flying all abroad.
In every star thy wisdom shines ;
2 The rolling sun, the changing light,
And nights and days, thy power confess ;
Reveals thy justice and thy grace.
Round the whole earth, and never stand ;
It touch'd and glanc'd on ev'ry land. 4 Nor shall thy spreading gospel rest,
Till through the world thy truth has run;
That see the light, or feel the sun.] 51 Great Sun of Righteousness, arise !
Bless the dark world with heavenly light; Thy gospel makes the simple wise ;
Thy laws are pure, thy judgments right. * 6 Thy noblest wonders here we view,
In souls renew'd and sins forgiven :
Begins his glorious way;
And light and life convey,
