The Lord will be my friend.
3 Hide not Thy face afar from me, 5 My heart had failed in fear and woe
For Thou alone canst help afford; Unless in God I had believed,

Nor let my soul forsaken be, And that my life His grace should know,

Still wait for God, and He will hear;
Be strong, nor be thy heart dismayed,
Wait, and the Lord shall bring thee aid,
Yea, trust and never fear.

76 Divine Power in Manifestation
PSALM 29 12s and 1 is ARLEs Charles H. Gabriel
Copyright, 1912, by United Presbyterian Board of Publication
2 The voice of Jehovah, the God of all glory,
Rolls over the waters, the thunders awake;
The voice of Jehovah, majestic and mighty,
Is heard, and the cedars of Lebanon break.
3 His voice makes the mountains and deserts to tremble,
Wild beasts are affrighted, the forests laid bare,
And through all creation, His wonderful temple,
All things He has fashioned His glory declare.
4 The Lord ruled in might at the flood of great waters,
A King Whose dominion is never to cease;
The Lord will give blessing and strength to His people,
The Lord all His people will comfort with peace.
77 Commemoration and Praise PSALM 30 7s and 6s CRUCIFIx Greek Melody
2 His holy Name remember, 4 What profit if I perish,
Ye saints, Jehovah praise; If life Thou dost not spare P
His anger lasts a moment, Shall dust repeat Thy praises,
His favor all our days; Shall it Thy truth declare P
For sorrow, like a pilgrim, O Lord, on me have mercy,
May tarry for a night, And my petition hear;
But joy the heart will gladden That Thou mayst be my helper,
When dawns the morning light. In mercy, Lord, appear.
3 In prosperous days I boasted, 5 My grief is turned to gladness,
Unmoved I shall remain, To Thee my thanks I raise,
For, Lord, by Thy good favor Who hast removed my sorrow
My cause Thou didst maintain; And girded me with praise;
I soon was sorely troubled, And now, no longer silent,
For Thou didst hide Thy face; My heart Thy praise will sing;
I cried to Thee, Jehovah, O Lord, my God, forever
I sought Jehovah's grace. My thanks to Thee I bring.
PSALM 30 H. M. AVALON Arranged by William H. Doane
2 Thou hast my soul restored - 3 His wrath is quickly past,
When I was near the grave, His favor lives for aye;
And from the depths, O Lord, Though grief a night may last,
Thou graciously didst save; Joy comes at break of day;
O ye His saints, sing to the Lord, In my prosperity secure
With thanks His holiness record. I said, My peace shall still endure.

- [Stanzas 4-6] 2 What profit can it bring 3 With grief to gladness turned, If life Thou dost not spare P With sorrow changed to joy, Shall dust Thy praises sing, Thy praises I have learned, Shall it Thy truth declare P And songs my lips employ; Jehovah hear, in mercy hear, So shall my tongue through life adore My Helper, Saviour, now appear. And praise Thy Name for evermore.
