SS & S 501  In the heavenly pastures fair,

‘Neath the tender Shepherd’s care,

Let us rest beside the living stream today

Calmly there in peace recline,

Drinking in the truth divine,

As His loving call we now with joy obey.

 

Glorious stream of life eternal,

Beauteous fields of living green, . . .

Thou revealed within the Word

Of our Shepherd and our Lord,

By the pure in heart alone can they be seen . . .

 

2

Far from all the noise and strife

That disturb our daily life, [adore ;

Let us pause awhile in silence and

Then the sound of His dear voice

Will our waiting souls rejoice,

As He nameth us His own for evermore.

 

3

Oh, how good, and true, and kind,

Seeking His stray sheep to find,

If they wander into danger from His side!

Ever closely may we tread

Where His holy feet have led ;

So at last with Him in heaven we may abide.

 

 

SS & S 502  I would commune with Thee, my God :

E’en to Thy seat I come :

I leave my joys, I leave my sins,

And seek in Thee my home.

 

2

I stand upon the mount of God,

With sunlight in my soul ;

I hear the storms in vales beneath,

I hear the thunders roll ;

 

3

But I am calm with Thee, my God,

Beneath these glorious skies ;

And to the height on which 1 stand,

Nor storms nor clouds can rise.

 

4

Oh, this is life ! Oh, this is joy,

My God, to find Thee so !

Thy face to see, Thy voice to hear,

And all Thy love to know !

 



SS & S 503  Walk in the light, so shalt thou know

That fellowship of love

His Spirit only can bestow,

Who reigns in light above.

 

2

Walk in the light, and thou shalt find

Thy heart made truly His

Who dwells in cloudless light enshrined,

In whom no darkness is.

 

3

Walk in the light—and sin abhorred

Shall not defile again ;

The blood of Jesus Christ the Lord

Shall cleanse from every stain.

 

4

Walk in the light, and e’en the tomb

No fearful shade shall wear;

Glory shall chase away its gloom,

For Christ hath conquered there.

 

5

Walk in the light, and thou shalt own

Thy darkness passed away,

Because that light hath on thee shone,

In which is perfect day.

 

6

Walk in the light—–thy path shall be

Peaceful, serene, and bright;

For God, by grace, shall dwell in thee

And God Himself is Light.

 

SS & S 504  Sons of God, beloved in Jesus !

Oh, the wondrous word of grace !

In His Son the Father sees us,

And as sons He gives us place.

 

Beloved, now are we the sons of God,

And it doth not yet appear what we shall be

But we know . . that when He shall appear,

We know . . that when He shall appear,

We shall be like Him ; we shall be like Him,

For we shall see Him as He is.

 

2

Blessed hope, now brightly beaming,

On our God we soon shall gaze ;

And in light celestial gleaming,

We shall see our Saviour’s face.

 

3

By the power of grace transforming,

W r e shall then His image bear ;

Christ His promised word performing,

We shall then His glory share.

 



 

SS & S 505  Praise the Saviour, ye who know Him;

Who can tell how much we owe Him ?

Gladly let us render to Him

All we are and have.

 

2

” Jesus ” is the name that charms us ;

He for conflicts fits and arms us ;

Nothing moves and nothing harms us,

When we trust in Him.

 

3

Trust in Him, ye saints, for ever ;

He is faithful, changing never ;

Neither force nor guile can sever

Those He loves from Him.

 

4

Keep us, Lord, oh, keep us cleaving

To Thyself, and still believing,

Till the hour of our receiving

Promised joys in heaven.

 

5

Then we shall be where we would be,

Then we shall be what we should be ;

Things which are not now, nor could

Then shall be our own. be,

 

 

SS & S 506  Blest be the tie that binds

Our hearts in Christian love ;

The fellowship of kindred minds

Is like to that above.

 

2

Before our Father’s throne

We pour our ardent prayers ;

Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one,

Our comforts and our cares.

 

3

We share our mutual woes,

Our mutual burdens bear ;

And often for each other flows

The sympathising tear.

 

4

When we asunder part

It gives us inward pain ;

But we shall still be joined in heart,

And hope to meet again.

 



SS & S 507  Onward, upward, homeward ! joyfully I flee

From this world of sorrow, with my Lord to be :

Onward to the glory ; upward to the prize ;

Homeward to the mansions far above the skies.

 

Onward to the glory ! upward to the prize!

Homeward to the mansions far above the skies I

 

2

Onward, upward, homeward ! here I find no rest ;

Treading o’er the desert which my Saviour pressed.

Onward, upward, homeward ! I shall

soon be there ;

Soon its joys and pleasures I, through grace, shall share.

 

3

Onward, upward, homeward ! come along with me ;

Ye who love the Saviour, bear me company.

Onward, upward, homeward ! press with vigour on ;

Yet a little moment, and the race is won.

 

 

SS & S 508  Rejoice in the Lord ! Oh, let His mercy cheer ;

He sunders the bands that enthrall ;

Redeemed by His blood, why should

we ever fear—–

Since Jesus is our ” all in all ” ?

 

” If God be for us, if God be for us, if God

Who can be against us ?

Who ? . . . who ? . . . who ? . . . be for us,

Who can be against us, against us ?

 

2

Be strong in the Lord ! rejoicing in His might,

Be loyal and true day by day ;

When evils assail, be valiant for the right,

And He will be our strength and stay.

 

3

Confide in His Word—-His promises so sure ;

In Christ they are “yea and amen ” ;

Though earth pass away, they ever shall endure,

‘Tis written o’er and ‘oer again.

 

4

Abide in the Lord : secure in His con-

‘Tis life everlasting begun ; [trol,

To pluck from His hand the weakest

trembling soul—-

It never, never can be done !

 



SS & S 509  We are out on the ocean sailing,

Homeward bound we sweetly glide ;

We are out on the ocean sailing,

To a home beyond the tide.

 

All the storms will soon be over,

Then we’ll anchor in the harbour;

We are out on the ocean sailing

To a home beyond the tide.

 

2

Millions now are safely landed,

Over on the golden shore ;

Millions more are on their journey,

Yet there’s room for millions more.

 

3

Spread your sails, while heavenly

Gently waft our vessel on ; [breezes

All on board are sweetly singing—-

Free salvation is the song.

 

4

When we all are safely anchored,

We will shout—-our trials o’er ;

We will walk about the city,

And we’ll sing for evermore.

 

 

SS & S 510  The dear old story of a Saviour’s love

Is sweeter as the days go by ;

The glad assurance of a home above

Is sweeter as the days go by.

 

We’ll fill . . the days with joy – – ful praise.

We’ll sing as the happy moments fly ; . . .

The song of love to Him above

Grows sweeter as the days go by.

 

2

The sunbeams shining from the living light

Are brighter as the days go by ;

The stars of promise cheering sorrow’s night

Are brighter as the days go by.

 

3

Hope’s anchor, holding in the stormy strife

Is stronger as the days go by ;

We feel the throbbings of immortal life

Grow stronger as the days go by.

 

4

The peace that Jesus gives to us anew

Is deeper as the days go by ;

The prospects opening to the Christian’s mView

Are grander as the days go by.

 

 

SS & S 511  Come, let us all unite to sing :

God is love ! God is love !

While heaven and earth their praises

God is love ! God is love ! [bring :

Let every soul from sin awake,

Each in his heart sweet music make,

And sweetly sing for Jesus’ sake :

God is love ! God is love !

 

2

Oh, tell to earth’s remotest bound :

God is love ! God is love !

In Christ is full redemption found :

God is love ! God is love !

His blood can cleanse our sins away ;

His Spirit turns our night to day.

And leads our souls with joy to say,

God is love ! God is love !

 

3

How happy is our portion here !

God is love ! God is love !

His promises our spirits cheer :

God is love ! God is love !

He is our Sun and Shield by day,

By night He near our tents will stay—-

He will be with us all the way :

God is love ! God is love !

 

4

What though my heart and flesh shall

God is love ! God is love ! [fail :

Through Christ I shall o’er death

God is love ! God is love ! [prevail :

E’en Jordan’s swell I will not fear,

For Jesus will be with me there,

My soul above the waves to bear ;

God is love ! God is love !

 

 

SS & S 512  A few more marchings weary,

Then we’ll gather home !

A few more storm-clouds dreary,

Then we’ll gather home !

A few more days the cross to bear,

And then with Christ a crown to

A few more marchings weary, [wear;

Then we’ll gather home !

 

O’er . . time’s . . rapid river,

Soon . . we’ll . . rest for ever

No more marchings weary

When we gather home !

 

2

A few more nights of weeping,

Then we’ll gather home !

A few more watches keeping,

Then we’ll gather home !

A few more victories over sin,

A few more sheaves to gather in,

A few more marchings weary,

Then we’ll gather home !

 

3

A few more sweet links broken,

Then we’ll gather home !

A few more kind words spoken,

Then we’ll gather home !

A few more partings on the strand,

And then away to Canaan’s land:

A few more marchings weary,

Then we’ll gather home !

 



SS & S 513  O God, our help in ages past,

Our hope for years to come,

Our shelter from the stormy blast,

And our eternal home.

 

2

Under the shadow of Thy throne

Thy saints have dwelt secure ;

Sufficient is Thine arm alone,

And our defence is sure.

 

3

Before the hills in order stood,

Or earth received her frame,

From everlasting Thou art God,

To endless years the same.

 

4

A thousand ages in Thy sight

Are like an evening gone ;

Short as the watch that ends the night

Before the rising sun.

 

5

Time, like an ever-rolling stream,

Bears all its sons away ;

They fly forgotten, as a dream

Dies at the opening day.

 

6

O God, our help in ages past,

Our hope for years to come,

Be Thou our guard while life shall last,

And our eternal home.

 

 

SS & S 514  O God of Bethel ! by whose hand

Thy people still are fed,

Who through this weary pilgrimage

Hast all our fathers led :

 

2

Our vows, our prayers, we now present

Before Thy throne of grace :

God of our fathers, be the God

Of their succeeding race !

 

3

Through each perplexing path of life

Our wandering footsteps guide :

Give us each day our daily bread,

And raiment fit provide.

 

4

Oh, spread Thy covering wings around,

Till all our wanderings cease,

And at our Father’s loved abode

Our souls arrive in peace.

 

5

Such blessings from Thy gracious

Our humble prayers implore, [hand

And Thou shalt be our chosen God

And portion evermore.

 



SS & S 515  When all Thy mercies, O my God,

My rising soul surveys,

Transported with the mView, I’m lost

In wonder, love, and praise.

 

2

Unnumbered comforts on my soul

Thy tender care bestowed,

Before my infant heart conceived

From whom these comforts flowed.

 

3

When worn with sickness, oft hast Thou

With health renewed my face ;

And when in sins and sorrows sunk,

Revived my soul with grace.

 

4

Ten thousand thousand precious gifts

My daily thanks employ ;

Nor is the least a cheerful heart

That tastes those gifts with joy.

 

5

Through every period of my life

Thy goodness I’ll pursue ;

And after death, in distant worlds,

The glorious theme renew.

 

6

Through all eternity to Thee

A joyful song I’ll raise ;

But oh, eternity’s too short

To utter all Thy praise !

 

SS & S 516  God moves in a mysterious way

His wonders to perform ;

He plants His footsteps in the sea,

And rides upon the storm.

 

2

Deep in unfathomable mines

Of never-failing skill,

He treasures up His bright designs,

And works His sovereign will.

 

3

Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take !

The clouds ye so much dread

Are big with mercy, and will break

In blessings on your head.

 

4

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,

But trust Him for His grace;

Behind a frowning providence

He hides a smiling face.

 

5

His purposes will ripen fast,

Unfolding every hour;

The bud may have a bitter taste,

But sweet will be the flower.

 

6

Blind unbelief is sure to err.

And scan His work in vain ;

God is His own interpreter,

And He will make it plain.

 



SS & S 517  God will take care of you, be afraid,

He is your safeguard through sunshine and shade ;

Tenderly watching and keeping His own,

He will not leave you to wander alone.

 

God will take care of you still to the end ;

Oh, what a Father, Redeemer, and Friend !

Jesus will answer whenever you call ;

He will take care of you ; trust Him for all !

 

2

God will take care of you through all the day,

Shielding your footsteps, directing your way ;

He is your Shepherd, Protector, and Guide.

Leading His children where still waters glide.

 

3

God will take care of you, long as you live,

Granting you blessings no other can give ;

He will take care of you when time is past,

Safe to His kingdom will bring you at last

 

 

SS & S 518  He leadeth His own with a gentle hand,

A wonderful Saviour have we !

Oh, where is the friend that on earth we can find

So full of compassion as He ?

 

Won – – – derful Saviour, won – – – derful Saviour

Watching so tenderly o’er us !

Shedding bright sunshine before us ;

Glo – – ry, hon – – our, and praise . . to His name !

 

2

He leadeth His own with a gentle hand,

Whenever we faint by the way ;

How precious the blessings that fall from His throne,

Like dew at the close of the day !

 

3

He leadeth His own with a gentle hand,

And when we are sorrow-oppressed,

He gathers us under the shade of His love,

And there on His bosom we rest.

 

4

He leadeth His own with a gentle hand,

And oh, when our journey is o’er,

What rapture in Eden to sit at His feet,

And praise Him when time is no more !

 



SS & S 519  Oh, safe to the Rock that is higher than !,

My soul in its conflicts and sorrows would fly ;

So sinful, so weary, Thine, Thine would I be ;

Thou blest ” Rock of Ages,” I’m hiding in Thee.

 

Hiding in Thee, hiding in Thee,

Thou blest ” Rock of Ages,” I’m hiding in Thee.

 

2

In the calm of the noontide, in sorrow’s lone hour,

In times when temptation casts o’er me its power;

In the tempests of life, on its wide, heaving sea,

Thou blest ” Rock of Ages,” I’m hiding in Thee.

 

3

How oft in the conflict, when pressed by the foe,

I have fled to my Refuge and breathed out my woe ;

How often when trials like sea-billows roll,

Have I hidden in Thee, O Thou Rock  of my soul.

 

 

SS & S 520  Hide me, O my Saviour, hide me

In Thy holy place ;

Resting there beneath Thy glory,

Oh, let me see Thy face.

 

Hide . me ! . hide . me ! .

O blessed Saviour, hide me !

O . Saviour, keep . me

Safely, O Lord, with Thee !

 

2

Hide me, when the storm is raging

O’er life’s troubled sea;

Like a dove on ocean’s billows,

Oh, let me fly to Thee !

 

3

Hide me, when my heart is breaking

With its weight of woe ;

When in tears I seek the comfort

Thou canst alone bestow.

 



SS & S 521  In the shadow of the Highest

My defence shall ever be,

For His eye, that never sleepeth,

Still is watching over me.

 

I am dwell – – – ing in the shadow . . .

Of the migh – – – ty King of kings ; . . .

With His feath – – – ers I am covered, . . .

And I rest . . . beneath His wings. . . .

 

2

In the shadow of the Highest

I am safe from dread alarms,

For beneath me and around me

Are His everlasting arms.

 

3

In the shadow of the Highest,

There no evil can befal—-

He’s my Hope, my Shield, and Buckler,

My Deliverer and my All.

 

 

SS & S 522  All the way my Saviour leads me ;

What have I to ask beside ?

Can I doubt His tender mercy,

Who through life has been my Guide ?

Heavenly peace, divinest comfort,

Here by faith in Him to dwell !

For I know, whate’er befal me,

Jesus doeth all things well.

 

2

All the way my Saviour leads me,

Cheers each winding path I tread,

Gives me grace for every trial,

Feeds me with the living bread.

Though my weary steps may falter,

And my soul athirst may be,

Gushing from the Rock before me,

Lo, a spring of ioy I see.

 

3

All the way my Saviour leads me ;

Oh, the fulness of His love !

Perfect rest to me is promised

In my Father’s house above.

When my spirit, clothed immortal,

Wings its flight to realms of day,

This my song through endless ages—–

Jesus led me all the way !

 

 

SS & S 523  Lead me now and lead me ever,

Lest my feet should turn aside

From the path of love and duty,.

From the Cross where Thou hast died

 

Lead me now and lead me ever,

Till beyond the crystal sea,

Through the bright and shining portals,

I shall come and dwell with Thee.

 

2

Thou the great and only centre

Of my love and highest praise,

Let my soul, revolving round Thee,

Catch Thy pure, celestial rays.

 

3

Keep me, Lord, for well Thou knowest

How I need Thy grace divine,

From the thoughts that oft beguile me,

Still to shield this heart of mine.

 

 

SS & S 524  Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,

Pilgrim through this barren land;

I am weak, but Thou art mighty ;

Hold me with Thy powerful hand

Bread of heaven,

Feed me till I want no more.

 

2

Open now the crystal fountain,

Whence the healing waters flow ;

Let the fiery, cloudy pillar,

Lead me all my journey through :

Strong Deliverer,

Be Thou still my strength and shield.

 

3

When I tread the verge of Jordan,

Bid my anxious fears subside ;

Bear me through the swelling current,

Land me safe on Canaan’s side :

Songs of praises

I will ever give to Thee !

 



SS & S 525  Thou art my Rock, O blessed Redeemer,

Thou art my Refuge where I may hide ;

Thou art my Rock to shelter and bless me ;

Ever in Thee I safely abide.

 

Thou art my Rock, . . . O blessed Redeemer, . . .

Thou art my Friend, . . . and Thou art my Guide ; . . .

Thou art my Hope, . . . and Thou art my Saviour, . . .

Thou art my Trust ; … in Thee will I hide. . . .

 

2

Thou art my Rock when sin is inviting,

Thou art my Rock when trial is near;

Thou art my Rock when sorrow is smiting,

Thou art my Rock; why then should I fear ?

 

3

Thou art my Rock, temptations defying,

Thou art my Friend unchanging and sure;

Wholly on Thee my soul is relying,

Ever to keep me faithful and pure.

 

4

Thou art my Rock; when kingdom and nation,

Ruler and crown, have crumbled to dust ;

Thou shalt remain my Rock of salvation,

Rock everlasting, Thee will I trust.

 

 

SS & S 526  How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,

Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word !

What more can He say, than to you

He hath said—-

To you, who for refuge to Jesus have fled ?

 

2

” Fear not, I am with thee ; oh, be

not dismayed !

For I am thy God, I will still give thee aid ;

I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and

cause thee to stand, [hand.

Upheld by My gracious, omnipotent

 

3

” When through the deep waters I

call thee to go,

The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow,

For I will be with thee, thy trials to bless,

And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.

 

4

” When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,

My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply :

The flame shall not hurt thee : I only design

Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.

 

5

” E’en down to old age all My people shall prove

My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;

And then, when grey hairs shall their temples adorn,

Like lambs they shall still in My bosom be borne.

 

6

” The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,

I will not —-I will not desert to its foes ;

That soul—-though all hell should endeavour to shake—

I’ll never—-no, never—-no, never forsake ! ”

 



SS & S 527  Thou art, O Lord, my Hiding Place ;

My soul beneath Thy care

May fold its wings in perfect peace,

And fear no danger there.

 

My Hiding Place, my Hiding Place,

When stormy billows roll ;

My Rock, my Hope, my sure Defence,

The Anchor of my soul.

 

2

Thou art, O Lord, my Hiding Place

From storm and tempest wild ;

For naught can harm the humblest one

Whom Thou hast made Thy child.

 

3

Thou art, O Lord, my Hiding Place

From strong temptation’s power ;

For Thou hast promised by Thy grace

To keep me hour by hour.

 

4

Thou art, O Lord, my Hiding Place :

My life is hid with Thee ;

Lord, Thou art mine, and I am Thine,

Through all eternity.

 

 

SS & S 528  Like a shepherd, tender, true,

Jesus leads, Jesus leads !

Daily finds us pastures new,

Jesus leads, Jesus leads !

Though the mists hang o’er the way,

Or the flock ‘mid danger feeds,

He will watch them lest they stray—-

Jesus leads, Jesus leads !

 

2

All along life’s rugged road Jesus leads !

Till we reach yon blest abode, Jesus leads !

All the way, before, He’s trod,

And He now the flock precedes :

Safe into the fold of God Jesus leads !

 

3

Through the sunlit ways of life Jesus leads !

Through the warrings and the strife Jesus leads !

When we reach the Jordan’s tide,

Where life’s boundary line recedes,

He will turn the waves aside—

Jesus leads, Jesus leads !

 



SS & S 529  Down in the valley with my Saviour I would go,

Where the flowers are blooming and

the sweet waters flow ;

Everywhere He leads me I would

follow, follow on,

Walking in His footsteps till the

crown be won.

 

Follow ! follow ! I would follow Jesus !

Anywhere, everywhere, I would follow on !

Follow ! follow ! I would follow Jesus !

Everywhere He leads me I would follow one

 

2

Down in the valley with my Saviour I

would go,

Where the storms are sweeping and

the dark waters flow ;

With His hand to lead me I will

never, never fear :

Dangers cannot fright me if my Lord is near,

 

3

Down in the valley, or upon the mountain steep,

Close beside my Saviour, would my soul ever keep ;

He will lead me safely, in the path that

He has trod,

Up to where they gather on the hills of God.

 



SS & S 530  With my Saviour ever near to guide me,

I am safe, whatever may betide me;

From the storm and tempest He will hide me

In the hollow of His hand !

 

In the hollow … of His hand I . . .

In the hollow … of His hand I . . .

I am safe whatever may betide me,

In the hollow of His hand !

 

2

In His arms of love He doth enfold me ;

Words of peace His voice divine hath told me ;

I am safe, for God Himself doth hold me

In the hollow of His hand !

 

3

He will guard my soul, and leave me never;

From His love no power on earth shall sever;

And I know He’ll keep me now and ever

In the hollow of His hand !

 



SS & S 531  In the shadow of the Rock

Let me rest, let me rest,

When I feel the tempest shock

Thrill my breast, thrill my breast ;

All in vain the storm shall sweep,

While I hide, while I hide,

And my tranquil station keep,

By Thy side.

 

O my Saviour, blessed Rock !

Let me hide, let me hide ;

And for ever in Thy cleft

Safe abide.

Till the storms of life are past,

With their cold and chilly blast,

And I’m anchored safe at last,

By Thy side !

 

2

On the parched and desert way,

Where I tread, where I tread,

With the scorching noontide ray

O’er my head, o’er my head ;

Let me find a welcome shade,

Cool and still, cool and still,

And my weary steps be stayed,

While I will.

 

3

I in peace will rest me there

Till I see, till I see

That the skies again are fair

Over me, over me ;

That the burning heat is past,

And the day, and the day

Bids the traveller go at last

On his way.

 

 

SS & S 532  Take Thou my hand, and lead me—-

Choose Thou my way !

” Not as I will,” O Father, teach me to say.

What though the storms may gather,

Thou knowest best ;

Safe in Thy holy keeping, there would I rest

 

2

Take Thou my hand, and lead me—

Lord, I am Thine !

Fill with Thy Holy Spirit this heart of mine :

Then in the hour of trial

Strong shall I be,

Ready to do, or suffer, dear Lord, for Thee.

 

3

Take Thou my hand, and lead me,

Lord, as I go ;

Into Thy perfect image help me to grow.

Still in Thine own pavilion

Shelter Thou me ; [close to Thee !

Keep me, O Father, keep me close,

 



SS & S 533  Tenderly guide us, O Shepherd of love,

To the green pastures and waters above,

Guarding us ever by night and by day,

Never from Thee would we stray.

 

Never ! . . . never ! . . .

Never ! oh, never ! for Thou art the way

Never ! . . . never ! . . .

Never from Thee would we stray.

 

2

What though the heavens with clouds

be o’ercast !——

Fearful the tempest, and bitter the blast !

Still with the light of Thy Word on the way,

Never from Thee would we stray.

 

3

Over our weakness Thy strength has

been cast ;

Keep us in meekness, Thine own till the last ;

Then, safely folded, with joy we shall say,

Never from Thee would we stray.

 

 

SS & S 534  Leave me not, for I am lonely,

And the way I cannot see ;

Lest I wander into danger,

Keep me, Saviour, near to Thee.

 

Sa – viour, . Sa – viour, .

Keep me near to Thee ; . . .

Lest I wander into danger,

Keep me, Saviour, aear to Thee.

 

2

Leave me not, for darkness gathers

Round about the path I tread ;

Leave me not, but let thy footsteps

Ever by Thy hand be led.

 

3

Leave me not, for sin is near me ;

With temptation life is fraught ;

Then through all life’s toilsome journey,

O my Saviour, leave me not !

 



SS & S 535  In the secret of His presence He will hide me,

From the burden of a weary world of care ;

Overshadowed by His mercy, calmly resting,

My Redeemer will protect me there.

 

He will hide . . . me, . safety hide . . . me, .

Where no sorrow nor temptation can betide me ;

He will hide . . . me, . safely hide . . . me ; .

In the secret of His presence He will hide me.

 

2

In the secret of His presence He will hide me,

And the brightness of His glory He will show :

While He covers me with light as with a garment,

Oh the rapture that my heart will know !

 

3

In the secret of His presence He will hide me,

In the secret of His blessed, boundless love ;

There communing and abiding with my Saviour,

What a foretaste of the joys above !

 

 

SS & S 536  Thou art my hiding-place, O Lord !

In Thee I put my trust ;

Encouraged by Thy holy Word,

A feeble child of dust :

I have no argument beside,

I urge no other plea ;

And ’tis enough my Saviour died,

My Saviour died for me !

 

2

When storms of fierce temptation beat,

And furious foes assail,

My refuge is the mercy-seat,

My hope within the vail :

From strife of tongues and bitter

My spirit flies to Thee ; [words

Joy to my heart the thought affords—-

My Saviour died for me !

 

3

And when Thine awful voice commands

This body to decay,

And life in its last lingering sands

Is ebbing fast away—-

Then, though it be in accents weak,

My voice shall call on Thee,

And ask for strength in death to speak,

” My Saviour died for me !”

 



SS & S 537  Saviour, lead me, lest I stray, . ,

Gently lead me all the way ; . . .

I am safe when by Thy side, . . .

I would in Thy love abide. . . .

 

Lead me, lead me,

Saviour, lead me, lest I stray ;  . . .

Gently down the stream of time,  . . .

Lead me, Saviour, all the way.  . . .

 

2

Thou the refuge of my soul, . . .

When life’s stormy billows roll, .

I am safe when Thou art nigh, .

On Thy mercy I rely. . . .

 

3

Saviour, lead me, till at last, . . .

When the storm of life is past, .

I shall reach the land of day, . .

Where all tears are wiped away.

 

 

SS & S 538  Lead us, Heavenly Father, lead us

O’er the world’s tempestuous sea ;

Guide us, guard us, keep us, feed us,

For we have no help but Thee ;

Yet possessing every blessing,

If our God our Father be.

 

2

Saviour, breathe forgiveness o’er us,

All our weakness Thou dost know ;

Thou didst tread the earth before us,

Thou didst feel its keenest woe ;

Lone and dreary, faint and weary,

Through the desert Thou didst go.

 

3

Spirit of our God descending,

Fill our hearts with heavenly joy ;

Love with every feeling blending,

Pleasures that can never cloy :

Thus provided, pardoned, guided,

Nothing can our peace destroy.

 



SS & S 539  The Lord’s our Rock, in Him we hide:

A shelter in the timo of storm !

Secure whatever ill betide :

A shelter in the time of storm !

 

Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land!

A weary land, a weary land ;

Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land

A shelter in the time of storm !

 

2

A shade by day, defence by night :

A shelter in the time of storm !

No fears alarm, no foes affright :

A shelter in the time of storm !

 

3

The raging storms may round us beat :

A shelter in the time of storm !

We’ll never leave our safe retreat,

A shelter in the time of storm !

 

4

O Rock divine, O Refuge dear:

A shelter in the time of storm !

Be Thou our helper ever near,

A shelter in the time of storm !

 

 

SS & S 540  A wonderful Saviour is Jesus, my Lord,

A wonderful Saviour to me ;

He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,

Where rivers of pleasure I see.

 

He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,

That shadows a dry, thirsty land ;

He hideth my life in the depths of His love,

And covers me there with His hand.

 

2

A wonderful Saviour is Jesus, my Lord,

He taketh my burden away ;

He holdeth me up, and I shall not be moved,

He giveth me strength as my day.

 

3

With numberless blessings each moment He crowns,

And, filled with His goodness divine,

I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God

For such a Redeemer as mine !

 

4

When clothed in His brightness,

transported I rise

To meet Him in clouds of the sky,

His perfect salvation, His wonderful love,

I’ll shout with the millions on high.

 



SS & S 541  Under His wings I am safely abiding ;

Though the night deepens and

tempests are wild,

Still I can trust Him —-I know He

will keep me;

He has redeemed me, and I am His child.

 

Under His wings, under His wings,

Who from His love can sever ?

Under His wings my soul shall abide,

Safely abide for ever.

 

2

Under His wings, what a refuge in sorrow !

How the heart yearningly turns to its rest !

Often when earth has no balm for

my healing,

There I find comfort, and there I am blest.

 

3

Under His wings, oh, what precious

enjoyment !

There will I hide till life’s trials are o’er ;

Sheltered, protected, no evil can harm me ;

Resting in Jesus I’m safe evermore.

 

 

SS & S 542  He leadeth me ! O blessed thought !

O words with heavenly comfort fraught !

Whate’er I do, where’er I be,

Still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.

 

He leadeth me ! He leadeth me !

By His own hand He leadeth me ;

His faithful follower I would be,

For by His hand He leadeth me.

 

2

Sometimes ‘mid scenes of deepest gloom,

Sometimes where Eden’s bowers bloom,

By waters calm, o’er troubled sea—-

Still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.

 

3

Lord, I would clasp Thy hand in

Nor ever murmur, nor repine ; [mine,

Content, whatever lot I see,

Since ’tis my God that leadeth me.

 

4

And when my task on earth is done,

When, by Thy grace, the victory’s won,

E’en death’s cold wave I will not flee,

Since Thou through Jordan leadest me.

 



SS & S 543  Precious promise God hath given

To the weary passer-by,

On the way from earth to heaven,

” I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

 

” I will guide thee, I will guide thee

I will guide thee with Mine eye ;

On the way from earth to heaven,

I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

 

2

When temptations almost win thee,

And thy trusted watchers fly,

Let this promise ring within thee :

” I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

 

3

When thy secret hopes have perished

In the grave of years gone by,

Let this promise still be cherished,

” I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

 

4

When the shades of life are falling,

And the hour has come to die,

Hear thy trusty Leader calling,

” I will guide thee with Mine eye.”

 

 

SS & S 544  Where my Saviour’s hand is guiding,

And for all my wants providing—-

In His precious love confiding,

I’ll go with Him all the way.

 

Where my Saviour leads I’ll follow,

Where my Saviour leads I’ll follow,

Where my Saviour leads I’ll follow—-

I will follow all the way.

 

2

Though my path be dark and dreary,

And my steps be faint and weary—-

With His loving voice to cheer me,

I’ll go with Him all the way.

 

3

Though the ills of earth may wound me

And the storms of life confound me—-

With His loving arms around me,

I’ll go with Him all the way.

 

4

When the ties of earth shall sever,

And He calls me home for ever—

To the loved beyond the river,

I’ll go with Him all the way.

 



SS & S 545  O soul, tossed on the billows,

Afar from friendly land,

Look up to Him who holds thee

In ” the hollow of His hand.”

 

In the hollow of His hand !

In the hollow of His hand !—-

Oh, how safe are all who trust Him,

In the hollow of His hand !

 

2

Though raging winds may drive thee

A wreck upon the strand,

Still cling to Him who holds thee

In ” the hollow of His hand.”

 

3

When strength is spent in toiling,

And wearily you stand,

Then rest in Him who holds thee

In ” the hollow of His hand.”

 

4

When by the swelling Jordan,

Your feet in sinking sand,

Remember still He holds thee

In ” the hollow of His hand.”

 

5

And when at last we’re gathered

With all the ransomed band,

We’ll praise our God who holds us

In ” the hollow of His hand.”

 

 

SS & S 546  Lead to the shadow of the Rock of

Refuge my weary feet ;

Give me the water from the life-stream flowing

Clear, pure, and sweet.

 

There from the billows and the tempest hiding,

Under the shelter of Thy love abiding,

Safe in the shadow of the ” Rock of Ages ”

Joy shall be mine ! ‘

 

2

Lead to the shadow of the Rock

Eternal my heart opprest ;

There in the secret of Thy holy

presence, calm shall I rest.

 

3

Lead to the shadow of the ” Rock of

Ages “; oh, keep Thou me

Safe from the arrows of the world’s

temptations, close, close to Thee !



SS & S 547  When the storms of life are raging,

Tempests wild on sea and land,

I will seek a place of refuge

In the shadow of God’s hand.

 

He will hide . me ! . He will hide . me

Where no harm . . can e’er betide me :

He will hide . me I . safely hide . me, .

In the sha – – dow of His hand !

 

2

Though He may send some affliction,

‘Twill but make me long for home ;

For in love and not in anger,

All His chastenings will come.

 

3

Enemies may strive to injure,

Satan all his arts employ ;

God will turn what seems to harm me

Into everlasting joy.

 

4

So, while here the cross I’m bearing,

Meeting storms and billows wild,

Jesus for my soul is caring,

Naught can harm His Father’s child.

 

 

SS & S 548   Thou knowest, Lord, Thou knowest all about me,

And all the winding way my feet have trod;

And now Thou know’st I cannot go

without Thee,

To guide me onward through the swelling flood.

 

2

Thou know’st my way—how lone,

how dark, how cheerless,

If Thy dear hand I fail in all to see :

Bright with Thy smile of love, my

heart is fearless,

When in my weakness I can lean on Thee.

 

3

Give me Thy presence ! Go Thou,

Lord, before me,

Make a plain path where all is

rough and drear; [o’er me,

So let me trust the love that watches

And in the shadows still believe

Thee near.

 



SS & S 549   Saviour, hold me close to Thee,

Kept by the power of God ;

Only this my trust shall be,

Kept by the power of God.

 

Sweetly kept ” in perfect peace,”

When from fears He gives release ;

Kept M through faith ” till time shall cease,

Kept by the power of God.

 

2

Kept from every evil thing,

Kept by the power of God ;

Underneath His sheltering wing,

Kept by the power of God.

 

3

Kept till earthly perils past,

Kept by the power of God ;

We shall overcome at I ast,

Kept by the power of God.

 

4

Kept to sing His praise above,

Kept by the power of God ;

Wondrous mercy, wondrous love,

Kept by the power of God.

SS & S 550  Hold Thou my hand ! so weak I am, and helpless,

I dare not take one step without Thy aid ;

Hold Thou my hand ! for then, O loving Saviour,

No dread of ill shall make my soul afraid.

 

2

Hold Thou my hand ! and closer,

closer draw me

To Thy dear self—-my hope, my joy, my all :

Hold Thou my hand, lest haply I

should wander ;

And, missing Thee, my trembling feet should fall.

 

3

Hold Thou my hand ! the way is

dark before me

Without the sunlight of Thy face divine ;

But when by faith I catch its radiant glory,

What heights of joy, what rapturous songs are mine !

 

4

Hold Thou my hand ! that when I

reach the margin

Of that lone river Thou didst cross for me,

A heavenly light may flash along its waters,

And every wave like crystal bright shall be.
