The mighty God, on whom I call, Can save me here as well. Pause. 7 By morning light I'll seek his face, At noon repeat my cry, The night shall hear me ask his grace, Nor will he long deny. 8 God shall preserve my soul from fear, Or shield me when afraid; Ten thousand angels must appear If he command their aid. 9 I cast my burdens on the Lord, The Lord sustains them all; My courage rests upon his word, That saints shall never fall. 10 My highest hopes shall not be vain, My lips shall spread his praise; While cruel and deceitful men, Scarce live out half their days.

"Stricken, smitten and afflicted"

Hymnal: Hymns, Selected and Original #126 (1828) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Topics: "Stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted" Lyrics: 1 "Stricken, smitten and afflicted," See him dying on the tree! 'Tis the Christ by man rejected; Yes, my soul, 'tis he! 'tis he! 'Tis the long expected prophet, David's son, yet David's Lord; Proofs I see sufficient of it: 'Tis the true and faithful word. 2 Tell me, ye who hear him groaning, Was there ever grief like his? Friends through fear His cause disowning, Foes insulting his distress: Many hands were rais'd to wound him, None would interpose to save; But the awful stroke that pierced him Was the stroke that Justice gave. 3 Ye who think of sin but lightly, Nor suppose the evil great; Here may view its nature rightly, Here its guilt may estimate. Mark the sacrifice appointed! See who bears the awful load; 'Tis the WORD, the Lord's ANOINTED, Son of man and Son of God. 4 Here we have a firm foundation; Here's the refuge of the lost: Christ's the rock of our salvation: His the name of which we boast: Lamb of God, for sinners wounded! Sacrifice to cancel guilt! None shall ever be confounded Who on him their hope have built. Scripture: Isaiah 53:4

O Zion, afflicted with wave upon wave

Hymnal: Book of Worship (Rev. ed.) #226 (1870) Meter: 11.11.11.11 Topics: Church Afflicted Lyrics: 1 O Zion, afflicted with wave upon wave, Whom no man can comfort, whom no man can save; With darkness surrounded, by terrors dismay'd, In toiling and rowing, thy strength is decay'd. 2 Loud roaring, the billows now nigh o’erwhelm, But skilful’s the Pilot who sits at the helm; His wisdom conducts thee, His power thee defends; In safety and quiet thy warfare He ends. 3 "O fearful! O faithless!" in mercy He cries; “My promise, my truth, are they small in thine eyes? Still, still I am with thee, my promise shall stand; Through tempest and tossing I’ll bring thee to land."
