Old and New Year 446. O God of Bethel, by Whose Hand


Scottish Psalter, 1615

Philip Doddridge, 1736;

John Logan, 1781

O God of Bethel, by whose hand

Thy people still are fed;

Who through this weary pilgrimage

Hast all our fathers led:

Our vows, our prayers, we now present

Before thy throne of grace:

God of our fathers, be the God

Of their succeeding race.

Through each perplexing path of life

Our wandering footsteps guide;

Give us each day our daily bread,

And raiment fit provide.

O spread thy sheltering wings around,

Till all our wanderings cease,

And at our Father's loved abode

Our souls arrive in peace!

Such blessings from thy gracious hand

Our humble prayers implore;

And thou shalt be our chosen God,

And portion evermore.
