318. O Lamb of God, Still Keep Us

7,6.
by J.G. Deck
1
O Lamb of God, still keep us
 
Close to Thy piercèd 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.
John 1:36; John 19:34; Proverbs 21:31; John 14:27; Psalm 23:5; 2 Corinthians 7:5; Luke 15:4
2
'Tis only in Thee hiding
 
We feel ourselves secure;
 
Only in Thee abiding
 
The conflict can endure;
 
Thine arm the victory gaineth
 
O'er every hateful foe;
 
Thy love our hearts sustaineth,
 
In all their cares and woe.
Psalm 17:8; John 15:4-5; 2 Timothy 2:3; 1 Corinthians 15:57; Deuteronomy 9:29; Psalm 44:3; Psalm 98:1; Jude 1:21; 1 Peter 5:7
3
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.
