1 Long have I sat beneath the sound
Of thy salvation, Lord;
But still how weak my faith is found,
And knowledge of Thy Word!

How little art Thou known
By all the judgments of Thy rod,
And blessings of Thy throne!

3 How cold and feeble is my love
How negligent my fear!
How low my hope of joys above!
How few affections there!

4 Great God, Thy sovereign power impart
To give Thy Word success;
Write Thy salvation in my heart,
And make me learn Thy grace.

5 Show my forgetful feet the way
That leads to joys on high;
There knowledge grows without decay,
And love shall never die.
