1 Jesus, lead us with Thy power

Safe unto the promised rest ;
Hide our souls within Thy bosom ;

Let us slumber on Thy breast. 2 Feed us with the heavenly manna,

Bread that angels eat above ;
Let us from the holy fountain

Drink of everlasting love. 3 Through the desert wild conduct us

With a glorious pillar bright,
In the day a cooling comfort,

And a cheering fire by night. 4 Be our Guide in every peril,

Watch us hourly night and day; Otherwise we err and wander

From Thy Spirit far away.

915 1 Hail, Thou God of grace and glory,

Who Thy Name hast magnified By redemption's wondrous story,

By the Saviour crucified. 2 Thanks to Thee for every blessing

Flowing from the fount of love; Thanks for present good unceasing,

And for hopes of bliss above.

3 Hear us, as thus bending lowly

Near Thy bright and burning throne, We invoke Thee, God Most Holy,

Through Thy well-beloved Son!

4 Send the baptism of Thy Spirit,

Shed the pentecostal fire;
Let us all 'Thy grace inherit;

Waken, crown each good desire.

5 In Thy presence we are happy;

In Thy presence we're secure; In Thy presence all afflictions

We can easily endure :

5 Bind Thy people, Lord, in union,

With the sevenfold cord of love; Breathe a spirit of communion

With the glorious hosts above.

6 In Thy presence we can conquer,

We can suffer, we can die ;
Far from Thee we faint and languish ;

Lord, our Saviour, keep us nigh!

6 Let Thy work be seen progressing;

Bow each heart and bend each knee; Till the world Thy truth possessing,

Celebrates its Jubilee.

Thus evermore shall rise to Thee 1 ETERNAL FATHER, strong to save,

Glad hymns of praise from land and sea! Whose arm hath bound the restless

917 wave, Who bid'st the mighty ocean deep

1 While o'er the deep Thy servants sail, Its own appointed limits keep;

Send Thou, O Lord, the prosperous Oh hear us when we cry to Thee

gale; For those in peril on the sea !

And on their hearts, where'er they go,

Oh let Thy heavenly breezes blow. 2 O Christ, whose voice the waters heard

And hushed their raging at Thy word, 2 If on the morning's wings they fly, Who walkedst on the foaming deep,

They will not pass beyond 'Thine eye ; And calm amidst its rage didst sleep; The wanderer's prayer Thou bend'st Oh hear us when we cry to Thee

to hear, For those in peril on the sea !

And faith exults to know Thee near. 3 Most Holy Spirit, who didst brood

3 When tempests rock the groaning bark, Upon the chaos dark and rude,

Oh hide them safe in Jesus' ark;
And bid its angry tumult cease,
And give, for wild confusion, peace;

When in the tempting port they ride, Oh hear us when we cry to Thee

Oh keep them safe at Jesus' side. For those in peril on the sea!

4 If life's wide ocean smile or roar, 4 O Trinity of love and power,

Still guide them to the heavenly shore; Our brethren shield in danger's hour; And grant their dust in Christ may From rock and tempest, fire and foe,

sleep, Protect them wheresoe'er they go: Abroad, at home, or in the deep.
