901. 8s. & 7s. M. Estlin. Reliance for the Future.
1 Gracious Source of every blessing!
Guard our breasts from anxious fears;
May we still thy love possessing,
Sink into the vale of years.
2 All our hopes on thee reclining,
Peace companion of our way;
May our sun, in smiles declining,
Rise in everlasting day.
