8.6.8.6

201

I

The Lord is very good to those

Who seek His matchless grace;

The needy find supplies in Him,

The weak a resting-place.

II

The Lord is very good to those

Who own His sovereign Will;—

A path of safety is for such

As His commands fulfil.

III

Who hope in God in light and dark,

In failure and success,

Enjoy a bliss surpassing far

Earth's utmost blessedness.

IV

And they who seek the love of God

May fear no earthly frown;

For nought of earth can quench the flame

That waters cannot drown.

V

O Jesus Christ! in Thee we trust,

And rest upon Thy care;

In mercy, then, Thy mercy send,

In answer to our prayer.

VI

Now, unto Christ, the Blessed Son,

And God with Whom He dwells,

And to the Holy Paraclete,

Be glory that excels.
