165. When in the Night I Meditate

1 When in the night I meditate,
On mercies multiplied,
My grateful heart inspires my tongue
To bless the Lord, my guide.

2 Forever in my thought the Lord
Before my face shall stand;
Secure, unmoved I shall remain,
With God at my right hand.

3 My inmost being thrills with joy
And gladness fills my breast;
Because on God my trust is stayed,
My flesh in hope shall rest.

4 I know that I shall not be left
Forgotten in the grave,
And from corruption, Thou, O Lord,
Thy holy one wilt save.

5 The path of life Thou showest me;
Of joy a boundless store
Is ever found at Thy right hand,
And pleasures evermore.
