O Shepherd of Israel, Thou that leadest Joseph like a flock."
Imf O KING of mercy, from Thy throne on high

Look down in love, and hear our humble cry;
2P Thou tender Shepherd of the blood-bought sheep,
cres Thy feeble wandering flock in safety keep.

To contrite sinners life eternal give.
4mf Thou art the Bread of heaven, on Thee we feed;

Sweet fount of joy and blessings without end.

Reveal the brightness of Thy glorious face !

Be near our steps, and make our darkness light.

In life, in death, our Comfort, Strength, and Guide.

f And bring us safely to our home above! Amen.

I JOH, for a heart to praise my God! 3P A humble, lowly, contrite heart,
A heart from sin set free;

Believing, true, and clean,
A heart that always feels Thy blood cres Which neither life nor death can part
So freely shed for me ;

From Him that dwells within; 2 mfA heart resigned, submissive, meek, 4mf A heart in every thought renewed, My great Redeemer's throne,

And full of love divine, Where only Christ is heard to speak, Perfect and right and pure and good, Where Jesus reigns alone;

A copy, Lord, of Thine!
5 mf Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart ;

Come quickly from above ;
cres Write Thy new name upon my heart,

f Thy new, best name of Love. Amen.

Strives from Thy cross to loose my Who, loving, lov'st them to the end,

hold, On this alone my hopes depend, cres Then with Thy pitying arms enfold, dim That Thou wilt plead for me.

f And plead, oh, plead for me ! 2 mf When, weary in the Christian race, 5 PP And when my dying hour draws near,

Far off appears my resting-place, O'ercast with sorrow, pain, and fear, And, fainting, I mistrust Thy grace, cres Then to my fainting sight appear, dim Then, Saviour, plead for me.

Afar from Thine and wisdom's way, Reveals my sins in dread array,
And see no glimmering, guiding ray, cres Say, Thou hast washed them allaway,
Still, Saviour, plead for me.

f Oh, say, Thou plead'st for me !

The wonders of Thy love,
Only in Thee abiding,

Shall be the endless story
The conflict can endure.
