Safe within thy fold

Representative Text

1 Remember not, O God,
the sins of long ago;
in tender mercy visit us,
distressed and humbled low.

2 O Lord, our Savior, help,
and glorify your name;
deliver us from all our sins
and take away our shame.

3 In your compassion hear
your pris'ner's plaintive sigh,
and in the greatness of your pow'r
save those about to die.

4 Then, safe within your fold,
we will exalt your name;
our thankful hearts with songs of joy
your goodness will proclaim.
