583. Lord, I lift my soul to thee

1 Lord, I lift my soul to thee,
O my God, I trust thy might;
Let not foes exult o'er me,
Shame me not before their sight.

2 Yea, may none be put to shame,
None who wait for thee to bless;
But dishonored be their name
Who without a cause transgress.

3 Lord, to me thy ways make known,
Guide in truth and teach thou me;
Thou my Saviour art alone,
All the day I wait for thee.

6 Lord, remember in thy love
All thy mercies manifold,
Tender mercies from above,
Changeless from the days of old.

7 Sins of youth remember not,
Nor my trespasses record;
Let not mercy be forgot,
For thy goodness' sake, O Lord.

8 Grace and truth shall mark the way
Where the Lord his own will lead,
If his Word they still obey
And his testimonies heed.
