And rocks and dangers fill the way. 4. So Abrah'm, by divine command,
Left his own house to walk with God;

JESUS, Shepherd of thy sheep,
Pity my unsettled soul;
Guide, and nourish me, and keep,
'Till thy love shall make me whole: Give me perfect soundness, give; Make me steadfastly believe.
2. I am never at one stay;
Changing ev'ry hour I am:
Now and even more the same:
3. Lay thy weighty cross on me, All my unbelief controul: "Till the rebel cease to be,
Keep him down within my soul:
That he never more may move, Root and ground me fast in love. 4. Give me faith to hold me up,
Walking over life's rough sea; Holy purifying hope,
Still my soul's sure anchor be: That I may be always thine, Perfect me in love divine.

Thee merciful and true:
2. Come then, for Jesu's sake,
3. I cannot wash my heart, But by believing thee:
And waiting for thy blood t' impart The spotless purity.

Jesus, the grace bestow; Now, thy all-cleansing blood apply, And make we white as snow.
