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.




Songs of praise the an - gels sang, Heav'n with al - le - lu - ias rang,

When Je-ho-vah's work be-gun, When He spake, and it was done. A - men.

How glo- rious is Thy mer-cy - seat, In depths of burn-ing light! A- men. 2 How dread are Thine eternal years, 4 Oh, how I fear Thee, living God, O everlasting Lord;


With deepest, tenderest fears, By prostrate spirits day and night And worship Thee with trembling hope, Incessantly adored!

And penitential tears! 3 How wonderful, how beautiful, 5 Yet I may love Thee too, O Lord, The sight of Thee must be,

Almighty as Thou art; Thine endless wisdom, boundless power, For Thou hast stooped to ask of me And awful purity!

The love of my poor heart. Amen.

2 Tell of His wondrous faithfulness, 3 His very word of grace is strong And sound His power abroad!

As that which built the skies; 11: Sing the sweet promise of His grace, :1/ 11: The voice that rolls the stars along :// And the performing God!

Speaks all the promises.
4 Oh, might I hear Thy heavenly tongue

But whisper “ Thou art mine!"
11: Those gentle words should raise my song :||
To notes almost divine. Amen.
