" Thy Will be doner                   201
CLXXXIV.
Psalm CI.
Lord, when I lift my voice to Thee,
To whom all praise belongs, Thy justice and Thy love shall be
The subject of my songs.
Let wisdom o'er my heart preside,
To lead my steps aright, And make Thy perfect law my guide,
Thy service my delight.
All sinful ways I will abhor,
All wicked men forsake ; And only those, who love Thy law,
For my companions take.
Lord ! that I may not go astray,
Thy constant grace impart: When wilt Thou come to point my way,
And fix my roving heart ?
William Hiley Bathurst. 1831
CLXXXV.
Forth in Thy Name, O Lord, I go,
My daily labour to pursue, Thee, only Thee, resolved to know,
In all I think, or speak, or do.
The task Thy wisdom hath assign'd
O let me cheerfully fulfil; In all my works Thy presence find,
And prove Thine acceptable will.
