1 Lord, for ever at thy side
let my place and portion be,
strip me of the robe of pride,
clothe me with humility.

4 Israel, now and evermore
in the Lord Jehovah trust;
him, in all his ways, adore,
wise and wonderful, and just.

Lord, for ever at Thy side. J. Montgomery. [Psalms cxxxi.] Published in Cotterill’s Selection, 8th ed., 1819, p. 73, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines, and headed, "For Humility." In 1822 it was repeated by Montgomery in his Songs of Zion, as a paraphrase of Psalms cxxxi.; in his Poetical Works, 1828; and his Original Hymns, 1853, No. 187. It is a most successful paraphrase, and is somewhat widely used.
