|81||Psalm 81||8 7. 8 7|
|JESUS, Lord, our strength and Saviour,
All our praise and love we bring,
And, in mighty grace rejoicing,
Glorious hymns of worship sing.
|2||Jesus, Thou hast surely saved us,
And from sin’s dark bondage freed;
Open we our mouths with longing,
Bless and meet our every need.
|3||When Thy people will not hearken,
Neither yield their ways to Thee,
Thou shalt stay Thy gracious kindness,
And Thine anger they shall see.
|4||Help us ever to obey Thee,
Gladly walking in Thy ways,
So shalt Thou, our foes subduing,
Grant us victories of grace.
|5||To our hungering souls, the finest
Of the wheat of life supply;
Light and grace and peace providing
Which shall more than satisfy.
