My heart within me dies,
Helpless, and far from all relief,

To heaven I lift mine eyes.
Af 2 Oh! lead me to the rock

That's high above my head,
And make the covert of thy wings

My shelter and my shade.

Forever I'll abide ;
Thou art the tower of my defence,

The refuge where 1 hide.

Trusting in God for Protection.
I MY spirit looks to God alone;

My rock and refuge is his throne;
In all my fears—in all my straits,

My soul for his salvation waits.

Pour out your hearts before his face;
When helpers fail-and foes invade,
God is our all-sufficient aid.

Its refuge in his wings.

Delight in God and his Worship.
10 GOD-my gracious God-to thee

My early prayers shall offered be;
For thee my thirsty soul doth pant!
My fainting flesh implores thy grace,
Within this dry and barren place,

Where I refreshing waters want.
2 Oh! to my longing eyes once more
That view of glorious power restore,

Which thy majestic house displays!
Because to me thy wondrous love
Than life itself does dearer prove,

My lips shall always speak thy praise. 63

SECOND PART. L. M. Leyden. 1 GREAT God, indulge my humble claim,

Thou art my hope—my joy-my rest;
The glories that compose thy name

Stand all engaged to make me blest. 2 Thou great and good--thou just and wise,

Thou art my father, and my God;
And I am thine, by sacred ties,

Thy son-thy servant, bought with blood. 3 With early feet I love t appear

Among thy saints, and seek thy face;
Oft have I seen thy glory there,

And felt the power of sovereign grace. 4 I'll lift my hands-I'll raise my voice,

While I have breath to pray or praise ;
This work shall make my heart rejoice,

And bless the remnant of my days.
