Thou, Lord, hast blest my going out, (Ps. 121:8)
O bless my coming in!
Compass my weakness round about, (Ps. 139:3)
And keep me safe from sin.
Still hide me in thy secret place, (Ps. 27:5)
Thy tabernacle spread;
Shelter me with preserving grace,
And screen my naked head.
To thee for refuge may I run (Num. 35:6)
From sin's alluring snare,
Ready its first approach to shun, (1 Thess. 5:22)
And watching unto prayer. (1 Pet. 4:7)
O that I never, never more
Might from thy ways depart!
Here let me give my wand'rings o'er,
By giving thee my heart.
Fix my new heart on things above, (Col. 3:2; Ezek. 36:26)
And then from earth release;
I ask not life; but let me love, (1 Kgs. 3:11)
And lay me down in peace. (Ps. 4:8)
