Hymn 289 - "O Lamb of God, still keep us"


O Lamb of God, still keep us

Close to Thy pierced side;

'Tis only there in safety

And peace we can abide;

With foes and snares around us,

And lusts and fears within,

The grace that sought and found us

Alone can keep us clean.



'Tis only in Thee hiding

We feel ourselves secure;

Only in Thee abiding,

The conflict can endure;

Thine arm the vict'ry gaineth

O'er every hateful foe;

Thy love our hearts sustaineth

In all their cares and woe.



 Soon shall our eyes behold Thee

With rapture, face to face;

And, resting there in glory,

We'll sing Thy power and grace

Thy beauty, Lord, and glory,

The wonders of Thy love,

Shall be the endless story

Of all Thy saints above.
