All my trust on thee is stayed;
All my | from thee I bring:

Cover my defenceless head
With the shadow of thy wing.

2 Other refuge have I none—

Helpless hangs my soul on thee:

Leave, oh! leave mé not alone!
Still support and comfort me.

Hide me, 8, my Saviour! hide,
Till the storm of life be past;

Safe into the haven #".
Oh receive my soul at last!

84 Christ the Way, Truth, and Life.
THOU art the way—to thee alone
From sin and death we flee;
And he who would the Father seek,
Must seek him, Lord, by thee.

2 Thou art the TRUTH-thy word alone
True wisdom can impart;
Thou only canst inform the mind,
And purify the heart.
3 Thou art the LIFE—the rending tomb
Proclaims thy conquering arm,
And those who put their trust in thee
Nor death, nor hell shall harm.

4 Thou art the way—the TRUTH-the LIFE; Grant us that way to know, That TRUTH to keep—that LIFE to win, Whose joys eternal flow.

Nothing from thy love shall sever
Those whom thou hast made thine own;
Happy objects of thy grace,
Destined to behold thy face.

When, the awful summons hearing,
Heaven and earth shall pass away :
Then with golden harps, we'll sing—
“Glory, glory to our King.”

Shout through hell's dark profound,
Let all the earth resound,”
Till heaven's high arch rebound,
“Victory is won.”

And our last foe will quell;
Mourners, rejoice!
His dying love adore—
Praise him, now raised in power,
Praise him for evermore,
With joyful voice.

When through the heavenly way,
Lo, he shall come!
While they who pierced him wail—
