1.  Lord Jesus Christ,

My Savior blest,

My refuge and salvation,

I trust in Thee,

Abide in me,

Thy word shall be

My hope and consolation.

2.  I will confide,

Whate’er betide,

In Thy compassion tender.

When grief and stress

My heart oppress,

Thou wilt redress

And constant help me render.

3.  When I  must weep

In sorrow deep,

Thy loving care enfolds me.

I have no fear

When Thou art near,

My Savior dear;

Thy saving hand upholds me.

4.  Lord, I will be

Alway with Thee,

Wherever Thou wilt have me.

Do Thou control

My heart and soul

And make me whole,

Thy grace alone can save me.

5.  Yea, help us, Lord,

With one accord

To love and serve Thee solely,

That henceforth we

May dwell with Thee

In Jubilee

And see Thy presence holy.

1.  The gloomy night to morning yields,

And brightly the day is breaking;

The sun now ascends o’er woods and fields,

The birds are with songs awaking.

God lend us His counsel and speed our days,

With grace unceasing surround us

2.  The Lord be prais’d for evermore

That He hath His peace us given,

And, ever in grief and troubles sore,

Hath sent us His light from heaven.

God lend us His counsel and speed our days,

With grace unceasing surround us.

3.  On Easter morn, at break of day,

Our Lord from the grave ascended;

He open’d to life and light the way

And terrors of darkness ended.

God lend us His counsel and speed our days,

With grace unceasing surround us.

4.  Redeem us, Lord, from death’s strong hand,

Thy grace us from sin deliver,

Enlighten us till with Thine we stand,

And make us Thy servants ever.

God lend us His counsel and speed our days,

With grace unceasing surround us.

5.  Then shall with praise we seek repose

When day unto night has yielded,

And safe in Thine arms our arms we close

And rest by Thy mercy shielded.

God lend us His counsel and speed our days,

With grace unceasing surround us.
