339 (L.M.) Philip Doddridge

Beset with snares on ev'ry hand,

In life's uncertain path I stand;

Saviour divine, diffuse Thy light,

To guide my doubtful footsteps right.

Engage this roving, treach'rous heart,

To fix on Christ the better part;

To scorn the trifles of a day,

For joys that none can take away.

Then let the wildest storms arise;

Let tempests mingle earth and skies;

No fatal shipwreck shall I fear,

But all my treasures with me bear.

If Thou, my Jesus, will be nigh,

Cheerful I live, and joyful die;

Secure, when mortal comforts flee,

To find ten thousand worlds in Thee.
