2 Loud may the troubled ocean roar, 4 That sacred stream, Thine holy word, In sacred peace our souls abide;

Our grief allays, our fear controls; While every nation, every shore,

Sweet peace Thy promises afford, Trembles and dreads the swelling tide. And give new strength to fainting souls.

2 Deep in unfathomable mines

4 Judge not the Lord by feeble sense, Of never-failing skill,

But trust Him for His grace; He treasures up His bright designs, Behind a frowning providence And works His sovereign will.

He hides a smiling face. 3 Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take; 5 His purposes will ripen fast, The clouds ye so much dread

Unfolding every hour; Are big with mercy, and shall break The bud may have a bitter taste, In blessings on your head.

But sweet will be the flower.
6 Blind unbelief is sure to err,

And scan His work in vain;
God is His own interpreter,
And He will make it plain. Amen.

Who thro' this wea - ry pil - grim-age Hast all our fa-thers led:

A - men.

2 Our vows, our prayers, we now present

Before Thy throne of grace: God of our fathers, be the God

Of their succeeding race.

4 Oh, spread Thy sheltering wings around,

Till all our wanderings cease,
And at our Father's loved abode

Our souls arrive in peace!
5 Such blessings from Thy gracious hand

Our humble prayers implore;
And Thou shalt be our chosen God,

And portion evermore. Amen.

3 Through each perplexing path of life

Our wandering footsteps guide; Give us each day our daily bread,

And raiment fit provide.

The love of my poor heart. Amen.
