M. F. Maude

THINE forever: God of love,

Hear us from Thy throne above;

Thine forever may we be,

Here and in eternity.


Thine forever: Lord of life

Shield us through our earthly strife;

Thou the Life, the Truth, the Way,

Guide us to the realms of day.


Thine forever: Oh, how blest

They who find in Thee their rest;

Saviour, Guardian, Heavenly Friend,

Oh, defend us to the end.


Thine forever: Saviour, keep

These Thy frail and trembling sheep;

Safe alone beneath Thy care,

Let us all Thy goodness share.


Thine forever: Thou our Guide,

All our wants by Thee supplied,

All our sins by Thee forgiven,

Lead us, Lord, from earth to heaven.
