2 Place on the Lord reliance,

My soul, with courage wait;
His truth be thine affiance,

When faint and desolate:
His might thine heart shall strengthen,

His love thy joy increase;
Mercy thy days shall lengthen,
The Lord will give thee peace. Amen.

(May be sung to St. Edmund, No. 351)

2 Though like the wanderer,

The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,

My rest a stone;
Yet in my dreams I'd be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to Thee.

4 Then, with my waking thoughts

Bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs,

Bethel I'll raise;
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to Thee.

3 There let the way appear

Steps unto heaven;
All that Thou sendest me

In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to Thee.

5 Or if on joyful wing,

Cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,

Upward I fly,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee. Amen.

Safe in Thy breast my head I hide,

Nor fear the coming storm.

2 In Thee 1 place my trust,

On Thee I calmly rest;
I know Thee good, I know Thee just,

And count Thy choice the best. 3 Whate'er events betide,

Thy will they all perform:

4 Let good or ill befall,

It must be good for me;
Secure in having Thee in all,
Of having all in Thee. Amen.

4 I need Thee every hour;

Teach me Thy will; And Thy rich promises

In me fulfil.-Ref.

2 I need Thee every hour;

Stay Thou near by; Temptations lose their power

When Thou art nigh. -Ref. 3 I need Thee every hour,

In joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide,

Or life is vain.-Ref.

Most Holy One;
O make me Thine indeed,
Thou blessèd Son!—Ref. Amen.

2 May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,

My zeal inspire;
As Thou hast died for me,
Oh, may my love to Thee
Pure, warm, and changeless be,

A living fire.

3 While life's dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,

Be Thou my guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow's tears away,
Nor let me ever stray

From Thee aside.

4 When ends life's transient dream,
When death's cold, sullen stream

Shall o'er me roll;
Blest Saviour, then, in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
Oh, bear me safe above,

A ransomed soul! Amen.
