Let me not wander from thy commandments.
Psalm 119:10.

Mrs. Steele.

Alas, what hourly dangers rise!

What snares beset my way!

To heaven, O, let me lift mine eyes,

And hourly watch and pray.

2 How oft my mournful thoughts complain,

And melt in flowing tears!

My weak resistance, ah, how vain!

How strong my foes and fears!

3 O gracious God! in whom I live,

My feeble efforts aid;

Help me to watch, and pray, and strive,

Though trembling and afraid.

4 Increase my faith, increase my hope,

When foes and fears prevail;

And bear my fainting spirit up,

Or soon my strength will fail.

5 O, keep me in thy heavenly way,

And bid the tempter flee!

And let me never, never stray

From happiness and thee.
