|31 (1)||Psalm 31 Version 1||CM|
|THE Saviour Who redeemed our souls
From death and endless woe,
Whose wisdom each event controls,
From Whom all mercies flow . . .
|2||He has decreed that even here
His faithful sons shall prove,
Through good or ill, ’midst toil and fear,
The riches of His love.
|3||But thenwhen life’s brief term is o’er,
And Heaven reveals her gates
What mighty blessings are in store,
What endless glory waits!
|4||Praise, then, your Saviour, all His saints,
To Him devote your hearts;
He hears and pities your complaints,
And strength and joy imparts.
|Harriet Auber, 1773-1862|
