Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
I Set the Lord before my face,|
He bears my courage up;
My heart and tongue their joys express,
My flesh shall rest in hope.
2. "My spirit, Lord, thou wilt not leave
3. "Thou wilt reveal the path of life,
4. Thus, in the name of Christ, the Lord,|
The holy David sung;
And Providence fulfils the word
Of his prophetic tongue.
5. Jesus, whom ev'ry saint adores,
6. When shall my feet arise and stand
