447. For thy mercy and thy grace

Four 7's

Gibbons:

Orlando Gibbons, 1623

Henry Downton, 1841

For thy mercy and thy grace,

Faithful through another year,

Hear our song of thankfulness;

Jesus, our Redeemer, hear.

407

Lo! our sins on thee we cast,

Thee our perfect Sacrifice;

And, forgetting all the past,

Press towards our glorious prize.

Dark the future; let thy light

Guide us, bright and morning Star:

Fierce our foes, and hard the fight;

Arm us, Savior, for the war.

In our weakness and distress,

Rock of strength, be thou our stay;

In the pathless wilderness

Be our true and living way.

Who of us death's awful road

In the coming year shall tread,

With thy rod and staff, O God,

Comfort thou his dying bed.

Keep us faithful, keep us pure,

Keep us evermore thine own,

Help, O help us to endure;

Fit us for the promised crown.

Amen.
