For thy mercy and thy grace
1 For thy mercy and thy grace,
faithful through another year,
hear our song of thankfulness;,
Jesus, our Redeemer, hear.
2 Lo! Our sins on Thee we cast, Thee, our perfect sacrifice, And forgetting all the past, Press towards our glorious prize.
3 Dark the future, let Thy light, Guide us, Bright and Morning star; Fierce our foes, and hard the fight; Arm us, Saviour, for the war.
4 In our weakness and distress,
Rock of Strength, be thou our stay;
in the pathless wilderness
be our true and living Way.
5 Keep us faithful, keep us pure,
keep us evermore thine own.
Help, O help us to endure,
fit us for thy promised crown.
