Hymn  409

Isaac Watts

Arr. By William Cameron, Adapted

Supreme in wisdom as in power,
The Rock of Ages stands;
Canst thou not search His word, and trace
The working of His hands?

He gives the conquest to the meek,
Supports the fainting heart;
And courage in the evil hour
His heavenly aids impart.

Mere human energy shall faint,
And youthful vigor cease;
But those who wait upon the Lord
In strength shall still increase.

They, with unwearied step, shall tread
The path of life divine;
With growing ardor onward move,
With growing brightness shine.

Hymn  143

Thomas Scott, Adapted

Imposture shrinks from light,
And dreads the piercing eye;
But sacred truths the test invite,
They bid us search and try.

With understanding blest,
Created to be free,
Our faith, O God, on Thee we rest,
Obeying none but Thee.

The truth Thou dost impart
May we with firmness own,
Abhorring each evasive art,
And loving Thee alone.

Hymn  269

Frederic W. Root

Our God is Love, unchanging Love,
And can we ask for more?
Our prayer for Love's increase is vain;
'Twas infinite before.
Ask not the Lord with breath of praise
For more than we accept;
The open fount is free to all,
God's promises are kept.

Our God is Mind, the perfect Mind,
Intelligence divine;
Shall mortal man ask Him to change
His infinite design?
The heart that yearns for righteousness,
With longing unalloyed,
In such desire sends up a prayer
That ne'er returneth void.

O loving Father, well we know
That words alone are vain,
That those who seek Thy will to do,
The true communion gain.
Then may our deeds our pure desire
For growth in grace express,
That we may know how Love divine
Forever waits to bless.
