84. Keep Me, O God of Grace

1 Keep me, O God of grace; from ill defend me;
my trust in thee I place; do thou befriend me;
thou art the Lord most high; save thee no good have I;
when sorrows multiply, thy peace attend me.

2 My goodly heritage thou, Lord, maintainest;
from childhood unto age my lot maintainest;
thy wisdom doth impart instruction to my heart;
thou who almighty art, to guide me deignest.

3 By thee my soul is blest with joy o'erflowing;
in confidence I rest, thy mercy knowing;
Lord, from the silent grace thou wilt thy servant save,
that life for which I crave at last bestowing.
