3 Why should this anxious load
4 His goodness stands approved
"As thy Day, so shall thy Strength be."
1 AFFLICTED saint, to God draw near; Thy Father's gracious promise hear; His faithful word declares to thee,
That "as thy day, thy strength shall be.”
2 Let not thy heart despond, and say, "How shall I stand this trying day?" He has engaged, by firm decree, That "as thy day, thy strength shall be."
3 Thy faith is weak, thy foes are strong;
4 When called by him to bear the cross, Or sore affliction, pain, or loss,
Or deep distress and poverty,
Still "as thy day, thy strength shall be."
5 When death at length appears in view, His presence shall thy fears subdue; He comes to set thy spirit free;
And "as thy day, thy strength shall be."
1 'TIS my happiness below
But with humble faith to see
2 God in Israel sows the seeds
Trials give new life to prayer;
Lay me low, and keep me there.
Assurance of the divine Presence and Help.
1 AND art thou with us, gracious Lord, To dissipate our fear;
Dost thou proclaim thyself our God-
2 Doth thy right hand, which formed the earth, And bears up all the skies,
Stretch from on high its friendly aid,
3 On this support my soul shall lean,
The gloomy vale of death must smile,
4 While I his gracious succor prove 'Midst all my various ways, The darkest shades, through which I pass, Shall echo with his praise.
The Discipline of Providence merciful.
1 HOW gracious and how wise
2 He lifts it up on high
With pity in his heart,
3 Instructed thus they bow,
And own his sovereign sway;
4 His covenant love they seek, And seek the happy bands,
That closer still engage their hearts
5 Dear Father, we consent
To discipline divine,
And bless the pains that make our souls
God's merciful and constant Protection.
1 WHEN all thy mercies, O my God,
2 Unnumbered comforts on my soul
3 When, in the slippery paths of youth,
Thine arm, unseen, conveyed me safe,
4 When worn with sickness, oft hast thou
5 Ten thousand thousand precious gifts
6 Through every period of my life,
Deliverance celebrated, and good Resolutions formed.
1 GREAT Source of life, our souls confess
2 By thee heaven's shining arch was spread;
3 Thy tender hand restores our breath,
4 These lives are sacred to the Lord;
5 So, when by him our souls are led
And praise him for his Son.
1 LOOK back, my soul, with grateful love, On what thy God has done;
Praise him for his unnumbered gifts,
