LORD GOD A SUN AND SHIELD




Return, dear Lord, make no delay,
Thy mercy is my plea;
Confusion unto me belongs,
Forgiveness unto thee.


Be thou my safety and defence,
My light, my joy, my bliss;
My portion in the world to come,
My confidence in this.


Remove my guilt and ease my load,
From thraldom set me free;
Those very bonds which thou shalt loose,
Shall bind my heart to thee.


Thou art my shield, and thou my sun,
Send forth a cheering ray;
And guide me through the dreary waste,
To realms of endless day.


I envy not the monarchís crown,
Nor miserís boasted store;
Grant me thy gracious presence, Lord,
And I desire no more.
