280 (S.M.) Isaac Watts

When overwhelmed with grief

My heart within me dies,

Helpless and far from all relief,

To heav'n I lift my eyes.

Oh, lead me to the Rock

That's high above my head,

And make the cover of Thy wings

My shelter and my shade.

Within Thy presence, Lord,

Forever I'd abide;

Thou art the tow'r of my defense,

The refuge where I'd hide.

Oh, give me, Lord, the lot

Of those who fear Thy name!

If endless life be their reward,

May I possess the same.
