40. Searcher and Savior of My Soul

1 Searcher and Savior of my soul,
my Sun, my Shield, my sovereign Judge,
all things are naked to thy view,
my heart, my thoughts, my words, my ways.

2 Oft to thy Word my Soul repairs;
thence I my highest comforts draw;
though foes may fight and devils rage,
if God be for me, all is well.

3 Sustain me then with promised grace,
revive my heart, increase my faith:
seal to my soul thy pardoning love,
let strength be equal to my day.

4 Supremely wise and good and great;
O! search my heart and try my ways.
Thy work I love, thy judgments fear,
and tremble while I pray and praise.
