2 My words from Thee I cannot hide, 4 If I the wings of morning take, I feel Thy power on every side;
And far away my dwelling make, O wondrous knowledge, awful might, The hand that leadeth me is Thine, Unfathomed depth,unmeasured height! And my support Thy power divine.

Their own defeat my foes prepare;
