404. Blest be Thy love, dear Lord

1 Blest be Thy love, dear Lord,
That taught us this sweet way,
Only to love Thee for Thyself,
And for that love obey.

2 O Thou, our soul's chief Hope!
We to Thy mercy fly;
What'er we are, Thou canst protect,
What'er we need, supply.

3 Whether we sleep or wake,
To Thee we both resign;
The darkest night is as the day,
If Thy light on us shine.

4 Whether we live or die,
Both we submit to Thee;
In death we live as well as life,
If Thine in faith we be.
