306. Lord, for ever at Thy side

Lord, for ever at thy side
Let my place and portion be:
Strip me of the robe of pride,
Clothe me with humility.

Meekly may my soul receive,
All thy Spirit hath revealed;
Thou hast spoken; I believe,
Though the oracle be sealed.

Humble as a little child,
Weanèd from the mother's breast,
By no subtleties beguiled,
On thy faithful word I rest.

Israel now and evermore,
In the Lord Jehovah trust;
Him, in all his ways, adore,
Wise, and wonderful, and just.

Holy Father, Holy Son,
Holy Spirit, Three in One!
Glory, as of old, to thee,
Now and evermore shall be.
