306. Lord, for ever at thy side

Four 7's


Arr. from Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826)

Psalm 131

James Montgomery, 1822


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 revealed;

Thou hast spoken; I believe,

Though the oracle be sealed.

Humble as a little child,

Weanèd from the mother's breast,

By no subtleties beguiled,

On thy faithful word I rest.

Israel now and evermore,

In the Lord Jehovah trust;

Him, in all his ways, adore,

Wise, and wonderful, and just.

Holy Father, Holy Son,

Holy Spirit, Three in One!

Glory, as of old, to thee,

Now and evermore shall be.
