And keep your courage up;
And far exceed your hope.
THIRD PART. 7s. Norwich 1 WHEN my cries ascend to thee,
Hear, Jehovah, from afar;
Still propitious to my prayer!
Quickly did my heart reply,
“ Thee I'll seek, O Lord most-bigh!"
When no more its help I share;
Though withdrawn a father's care;mf 4 Then Jehovah's guardian eye
Shall my orphan state defend,
He my guardian, father, friend!
FOURTH PART. 7s. Norwich 1 GRACIOUS Lord, disclose thy way,
In thy path my feet sustain:
Make the path of duty plain :
To the foes which round me rise;
Cruel power, or slanderous lies.

All thy goodness, Lord, to know. mf 4 Wait, then, Israel, on the Lord;
Still with courage cheer thy heart:
He will grace and strength impart.

Of foes and death afraid,
And sought, and found his aid. mf 3 O blest Redeemer-glorious Lord!
Thy shield-thy strength shall be
Who love, and trust in thee.
Oh save from guilt and wo;
And guard from every foe.
With joy her courts surround;
And saints thy praise resound.

Give praise and glory to the Lord;

And earth to its deep centre shakes.

And bless his chosen sons with peace.

To God, in grateful songs;

And wiped my weeping eye.
And snatched me from the grave;
Which mercy deigns to save. 31

He shall your prayers regard :
Shall meet your just reward.
