|119 (13)||Psalm 119 Part 13|
|7 7. 7 7|
|VAIN and futile are the thoughts
Of this present, passing world,
But the depths of glorious Truth
Are within Godís Word unfurled.
|2||Here the Saviourís finished work
Is to thirsting souls revealed:
Calvaryís atoning love
Only hiding-place and shield.
|3||Hold me, Lord, that I may give
All my hours and days to Thee,
Unensnared by godless minds,
Kept from subtle errors free.
|4||High and holy, Lord, art Thou!
Thus my heart is prone to fear
When I contemplate the dawn
When as Judge Thou shalt appear.
|5||O, forgive and cleanse away
All my falsehood, all my sin;
Thou my hiding-place divine
Happy is the soul within!
