377 (7.7.7.7.)

God of love, oh, hear our pray'r,

Kindly for Thy people care.

We on Thee alone depend;

Love and save us to the end.

Save us in the prosp'rous hour

From the flatt'ring tempter's pow'r,

From his unsuspected wiles,

From the world's pernicious smiles.

Cut off our dependence vain

On the help of feeble man;

Ev'ry arm of flesh remove —

Stay us on eternal love.

Men of worldly, low design —

Let not these Thy people join,

'Til they nothing know beside

Jesus, and Him crucified.

Save us from the great and wise,

'Til they sink in their own eyes,

Tamely to Thy yoke submit,

Lay their honors at Thy feet.

Never let the world break in,

Fix Thy word of truth between;

Keep us lowly and unknown,

Prized and loved of Thee alone.
