I Jesus, my Saviour, Brother, Friend,
( Mi whom I cast my every care,—
On whom for all things I depend,—
Inspire, and then accept my prayer.
2 If I have tasted of thy grace,
The grace that sure salvation brings,
If with me now thy Spirit stays.
And hov'ring, hides me in his wings:
3 Still let him with my weakness stay,
Nor for a moment's space depart;
Evil and danger turn away,
And keep till he renews my heart.
4 When to the right or left I stray,
His voice behind me may J hear,
" Return, and walk in Christ thy way;
Fly back to Christ, for sin is near!"
5 Jesus. I fain would walk in thee,
From nature's every path retreat:
Thou art my way; mv leader be.
And set upon the rock my feet. -

I Uphold me, Saviour, or I fall ;
O nach me out thy gracious hand !
Onlv on thee for help I call;
("inly by thee in faith I -tand.
2 Pierce, fill me, with an humble fear;
Mv utt'-r helplessness reveal !
Satan and sin are always near,
Thee may I always nearer feel.
3 O that to thee my constant mind
Might with an even flame aspire!
Pride in its earliest motions find,
And mark the risings of desire!
4 O that my tender soul might flv
The first abhor'd approach of ill;
Quick, as the apple of an eye,
The slightest touch of sin to feel!
5 Till thou anew my soul create,
Still may I strive, and watch, and pray,—
Humbly and confidently wait,
And long to see the perfect day.
347 b Ezckid xxxvi. 29, 30. L.M.
I Father, supply my every need ;
Sustain the life thyself hast given:
O grant the never-failing bread,
The manna that conies down from heaven.
2 The gracious fruits of righteousness,
Thy blessings' unexhausted store,
In me abundantly increase,
Nor ever let me hunger more!
3 Let me no more, in deep complaint,
"My leanness, O my leanness!" cry;
Alone consumed with pining want
()f all my Father's children, I.
4 The painful thirst, the fond desire,
Thy joyous presence shall remove!
But my full soul shall still require
A whole eternity of love.
