7 Thy name, O God, upon my bed
Dwells on my lips, and fires my thought;
I muse on all Thy hands have wrought, 8 In all I do I feel Thine aid;
Therefore Thy greatness will I sing,
Beneath the shadow of Thy wing!
Then let or earth or hell assail, Thy mighty hand shall set me free; For whom Thou say'st, he ne'er shall fail. 127
LN this beauteous framenath planned,
Woods that wave, and hills that tower,
Ocean rolling in his power :2 Yet amid this scene so fair,
Should I cease Thy smile to share,
Whom have I on earth but Thee?
Rolls a world of purer light;
Parted friends shall meet again :
Yet if Thou wert absent there,
Whom have I in heaven but Thee?
88 & 78. MONTGOMERY.
Rest beneath the Almighty's shade,
Dwell, and never be dismayed ;
Thou shalt dread no hidden snare;
In eternal safeguard there.
From the noisome pestilence,
God shall he thy sure defence;
When a thousand feel the blow,
Though ten thousand be laid low. 3 Since, with pure and firm affection,
Thou on God hast set thy love,
He will shield thee from above;
He will hearken, He will save;
Crown with life beyond the grave. 130

My every pulse shall beat for Him
The gracious theme for ever new,
Through all eternity pursue.
Again he to his earth shall turn;
He falls to rise on earth no more. 4 He, then, is blest, and only he,
Whose hope is in the Lord his God;
He loves the injured to redress;
He bids the blind their Saviour see. 6 Jehovah lifts the fallen up;
Jehovah loves the righteous race;
And turns their counsels upside down. 7 The Lord thy God, o Zion, reigns,
Supreme in mercy as in power,
