4 Oh, when his wisdom can mistake,
His might decay, his love forsake,
Then may his children cease to sing,—
The Lord omnipotent is King.
(Rockingham. L. M.) I Watts.
i My dear Redeemer, and my Lord,
I read my duty in thy word ;
But in thy life the law appears,
Drawn out in living characters.
2 Such was thy truth and such thy zeal,
Such deference to thy Father's will,
Sucn love, and meekness so divine,
I would transcribe and make them mine.
3 Cold mountains and the midnight air
Witnessed the fervor of thy prayer ;
The desert thy temptations knew,
Thy conflict and thy victory too.
5 Be thou my pattern ; make me bear
More of thy gracious image here ;
Then God, the Judge, shall own my name
Among the followers of the Lamb.
6 (Louvan. L. M.) O. W Holmes.
I Lord of all being; throned afar,
Thy glory flimes from sun and star;
Centre and soul of every sphere,
Yet to each loving heart how near!
