While He can find one humble heart 5 O thou Light, most pure and blest,
Wherein to rest.

And every thought of holiness,
Are his alone.

To fetch all quickening influence. 7 Thus I, conducted still by Thee,
Of God a child beloved shall be;

From every sin and hurtful snare;
In his enjoyment to be blest.
Nor let me from His pastures stray;
