Our anchor this of faith and love ;
Till God His vision shall bestow,

In Christ's triumphant Church above. 4. To God our Father raise the voice,

Invisible, Immortal King!
In our Redeemer's strength rejoice ;
And to the sacred Spirit sing. Amen.

PSALM xliii.

Just Judge of Heaven, against my foes

Do Thou assert my injur'd right,
O set me free, my God, from those

That in deceit and wrong delight.
Since Thou art still my only stay,

Why leav'st Thou me in deep distress?
Why go I mourning all the day,

While me insulting foes oppress?

Let me with light and truth be blest,

Be these my guides to lead the way;
Till on Thy holy hill I rest,

And in Thy sacred temple pray.
Why then cast down my soul ? and why

So much opprest with anxious care ?
On GoD thy God for aid rely,

Who will thy ruin'd state repair.

Then will I there fresh altars raise

To God Who is my only joy,
And well-tun'd harps, with songs of praise,

Shall all my grateful hours employ.
Why then cast down my soul ? and why

So much opprest with anxious care?
On GoD thy God for aid rely,
Who will Thy ruin'd state repair.

Since we, for all we want, or wish,
Alone on Thee depend.
