187. Lord, for ever at Thy side

Lord, for ever at Thy side,
Let my place and portion be;
Strip me of the robe of pride,
Clothe me with humility.

Meekly may my soul receive
All Thy Spirit hath reveal'd,
Thou hast spoken;--I believe
Though the prophecy were seal'd.

Quiet as a weanèd child,
Weanèd from the mother's breast,
By no subtlety beguiled,
On thy faithful word I rest.

Saints! rejoicing evermore,
In the Lord Jehovah trust;
Him in all his ways adore,
Wise, and wonderful, and just.
