When in the sultry glebe I faint,
THE Lord Himself, the mighty Lord,
Vouchsafes to be my guide ;
My wants are all supplied.
And, to his endless praise,
In his most righteous ways.
From fear and danger free ;
Defend and comfort me.
Through all my life extend,
And in his temple spend.
O THOU, to whose all-searching sight
WHEN all thy mercies, O my God,
My rising soul surveys,
In wonder, love, and praise.
Thy tender care bestowed,
infant heart conceived
With health renewid my face;
Reviv'd my soul with grace.
Through every period of my life
Thy goodness I'll pursue ;
The glorious theme renew.
JOIN all the glorious names
Of wisdom, love, and power,
That angels ever bore;
Great Prophet of our God!
Our tongues would bless thy Name;
Of our salvation came;
Jesus, our great High Priest,
Offer'd his blood and died ;
No sacrifice beside;
Thou great, almighty Lord,
Our Conqu’ror and our King!
Thy sov'reign grace we sing;
OUR Father sits on yonder throne,
Amidst the hosts above;
He reigns the God of love.
He knew us when we knew Him not,
Was with us, though unseen;
His love has wondrous been.
He keeps us now, securely keeps,
Whatever foe assails ;
With power that never fails.
He gives us hope that we shall be
Ere long with Him above;
And celebrate his love.
Then let us while we dwell below
Obey our Father's voice ;
And in his Name rejoice.
O GOD, how endless is thy love,
Thy gifts are every morning new;
Gently distil, like early dew.
Thou spread'st the curtains of the night,
Great Guardian of our sleeping hours ;
And quickens all our drowsy powers.
Perpetual blessings from thy hand
Demand perpetual songs of praise ;
And in thy service spend our days.
YES, God is good-in earth and sky,
From ocean-depths and spreading wood,
God made us all, and God is good.
The sun that keeps his trackless way,
And downward pours his golden flood,
In accents clear, that God is good.
Yes, God is good, all Nature says,
By God's own hand with speech endued ; And man, in louder notes of praise,
Should sing for joy that God is good.
For all thy gifts we bless Thee, Lord,
But chiefly for our heavenly food ;
These prompt our song that God is good.
