CLEAVING TO THE LORD




Oh Lord I would submissive lie,
Beneath thy footstool, near thine eye ;
There wait till thou thy grace display,
And turn my darkness into day.


I 'll rest upon the powerful arm,
Secure from danger and alarm ;
To thee lift up my longing eyes,
For fresh supports and fresh supplies.


If thou shouldst bid me go away,
How, dearest Lord could I obey?
Were I to perish, there I 'd be,
And put my trust alone in thee.


To merit, I make no pretense,
Nor dare I plead for pardon thence ;
’Tis boundless love and sovereign grace
Provide my soul a hiding place.


"I`is on thy gracious smiles I live,
From thee my hopes and joys derive ;
When enemies beset me round,
In thee, oh Lord, my help is found.


Be gone, tormenting doubts and fears,
God hears my voice, and sees my tears ;
His mercy 's sure, though often late,
His promise is to ‘those who wait.’?
