"Lead us not into Temptation" 243

No foes, no violence I fear,
No fraud, while Thou, my God, art near.

If rough and thorny be the way, My strength proportion to my day; Till toil, and grief, and pain shall cease Where all is calm and joy and peace.
John Wesley. 1739—1743-From the German.
Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah ! Pilgrim through this barren land ;
1 am weak, but Thou art mighty;
Hold me with Thy powerful hand ! Bread of Heaven ! Bread of Heaven ! Feed me now and evermore !
Open now the crystal Fountain,
Whence the healing streams do flow; Let the fiery cloudy pillar Lead me all my journey through ; Strong Deliverer ! Strong Deliverer! Be Thou still my Strength and Shield I
