256 (L.M.) Isaac Watts

Thus far the Lord has led me on,

Thus far His pow'r prolongs my days;

And ev'ry ev'ning shall make known,

Some fresh memorial of His grace.

Much of my time has run to waste,

And I perhaps am near my home;

But He forgives my follies past,

He gives me strength for days to come.

Faith in His name forbids my fear,

Oh, may Thy presence ne'er depart;

And in the morning make me hear

The love and kindness of Thy heart.

Thus when the night of death shall come,

My flesh shall rest beneath the ground;

And wait Thy voice to rouse my tomb,

With sweet salvation in the sound.
