6. Through this vain world he guides our feet, And leads us to his heav'nly seat: His mercies ever shall endure,
When this vain world shall be no more.
Hymn 144. S. M.
From the German.
To his sure trust and tender care,
Who earth and heav'n commands:
2. Thou on the Lord rely:
So safe shalt thou go on..
Fix on his work thy stedfast eye,
By self-consuming care:
To him commend thy cause, his ear
3. Thine everlasting truth:
Father thy ceaseless love,
Sees all thy children's wants, and knows
What best for each will prove.
And whatso'er thou will'st,
Thou dost, O King of kings;
4. Thou ev'ry where hast way,
Thy ev'ry act a blessing is,
Thy path unsullied light...
When thou arisest, Lord,
What shall thy work withstand?
What all thy children want, thou giv'st:
Who, who shall stay thy hand?
Hymn 145. s. M.
From the German.
IVE to the winds thy fears:
God hears thy sighs, and counts thy tears,
Thro' waves and clouds and storms,
Wait thou his time, so shall this night
2. Still heavy is thy heart:
Still sink thy spirits down:
What though thou rulest not,
Yet heav'n, and earth, and hell Proclaim, God sitteth on the throne And ruleth all things well.
3. Leave to his sov'reign sway
To choose and to command:
His counsel shall appear,
When fully he the work hath wrought,
4: Thou seest our weakness, Lord,
Thy stedfast truth declare,
And publish with our latest breath,
Hymn 146. L. M.
OD of my life, whose gracious pow'r
Or lifted up my sinking head!
And safe beneath thy wing to rest? 4. I have no skill the snare to shun,
But thou, O Christ! my wisdom art; I ever into ruin run,
But thou art greater than my heart.
The crooked then shall straight become:
Hymn 147. P. M.
HO' troubles assail and dangers affright;
Tho' friends should all fail, and foes all unite: Yet one thing secures us, whatever betide, The promise assures us: The Lord will provide. 2. The birds without barn or store-house are fed: From them let us learn to trust for our bread: His saints what is fitting shall ne'er be deny'd, So long as it's written: The Lord will provide..
3. We all may, like ships, by tempest be tost
We know not the way, but faith makes us bold; For tho' we are strangers, we have a sure guide, And trust in all dangers: The Lord will provide. 5. When satan appears to stop up our path, And fills us with fears, we triumph by faith: He cannot take from us (tho' oft he has try'd) The heart cheering promise: The Lord will provide. 6. He tells us we're weak, our hope is in vain, The good that we seek, we ne'er shall obtain: But when such suggestions our graces have try'd, This answers all questions: The Lord will provide. 7. No strength of our own, nor goodness we claim, Our trust is all thrown on Jesus's name;
In this our strong tower, for safety we hide; The Lord is our pow'r: The Lord will provide.. 3, When life sinks apace, and death is in view, The word of his grace shall comfort us through; Not fearing or doubting, with Christ on our side, We hope to die shouting: The Lord will provide.
Hymn 148. c. M. moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform :
He plants his footsteps in the sea,,
2. Deep in unfathomable mines
He treasures up his bright designs,
3. Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take,
Are big with mercy, and shall break
4. Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
The bud may have a bitter taste;
6. Blind unbelief is sure to err
Hymn 149. L. M.
Prhy great provider still is near;
EACE, troubled soul, thou need'st not fear;
Who fed thee last will feed thee still,
2. The Lord who built the earth and sky,
3. His stores are open all and free,
Water and bread, he'll give for food,
And sends them food as they have need;
