Representative Text

1 God, who is just and kind,
Will those who err instruct,
And to the paths of righteousness
Their wand'ring steps conduct.

2 The humble soul he guides,
teaches the meek his way;
Kindness and truth he shows to all,
Who him in truth obey.

3 Give me the tender heart,
That mixes fear with love;
And lead me thro' whatever path
Thy wisdom shall approve.

4 O ever keep my soul
From error, shame and guilt;
Nor suffer the fair hope to fail,
Which on thy truth is built.

John Patrick, a brother of Bishop Simon Patrick, was Prebendary of Peterborough, 1685; Precentor of Chichester, 1690; and preacher at the Charter-House, in the Chapel of which he was buried on his death, in 1695. His "Psalms of David, in Metre," were much used by Presbyterians and Independents until superseded by the compositions of Watts. ----Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872. Go to person page >
