828. GOD OF MY LIFE

Christ in Song,

1.
God of my life, whose gracious pow'r
Thro' varied scenes my soul hath led,
Or turned aside the fatal hour,
Or lifted up my sinking head,

2.
I have no skill the snare to shun,
But thou, O God, my wisdom art:
I ever into danger run,
But thou art greater than my heart.

3.
I rest beneath thy kindly shade;
My griefs expire, my troubles cease;
Thou, Lord, on whom my soul is stayed,
Wilt keep me still in perfect peace.
