R2b. O God of Bethel! by whose hand

1 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 pray'rs, 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 wand'ring footsteps guide;
give us each day our daily bread,
and raiment fit provide.
4 O spread thy cov'ring wings around
till all our wand'rings cease,
and at our Father's lov'd abode
our souls arrive in peace.
