THE YEAR
633
2   By day, by night, at home, abroad, Still we are guarded by our God; By His incessant bounty fed, By His unerring counsel led.
3   With grateful hearts the past we ownThe future, all to us unknown,
We to Thy guardian care commit, And peaceful leave before Thy feet. I 4 In scenes exalted or depressed,
Be Thou our joy, and Thou our rests Thy goodness all our hopes shall raise. Adored through all our changing daysj
Rev. Philip Doddridge, 1740

2  Dark the future; let Thy light
Guide us, bright and morning star: Fierce our foes, and hard the fight; Arm us, Saviour, for the war.
3   In our weakness and distress,
Rock of strength, be Thou our stay; In the pathless wilderness Be bur true and living way.
4   Keep us faithful, keep us pure,
Keep us evermore Thine own; 1 Help, O help us to endure;
Fit us for the promised crown. I
5   So within Thy palace gate
We shall praise, on golden strings) Thee the only Potentate,
Lord of lords, and King of kings.
Rev. Henry Downton, 1841
