673. Thine for ever! God of love

1 Thine for ever! God of love,
hear us from thy throne above;
thine for ever may we be
here and in eternity.

2 Thine for ever! Lord of life,
shield us through our earthly strife;
thou the life, the truth, the way,
guide us to the realms of day.

3 Thine for ever! O how blest
they who find in thee their rest!
Saviour, guardian, heav'nly friend,
O defend us to the end.

4 Thine for ever! Shepherd, keep
us thy frail and trembling sheep;
safe within thy tender care,
let us all thy goodness share.

5 Thine for ever! thou our guide,
all our wants by thee supplied,
all our sins by thee forgiv'n,
lead us, Lord, from earth to heav'n.
