6. He is our Friend in the midst of temptation
Faithful Supporter, whose love cannot fail;
Rock of our refuge and hope of salvation,
Light to direct us thro’ Death’s gloomy vale.
7. Star of the morning, thy brightness declining,
Shortly must fade when the Sun doth arise;
Beaming refulgent, his glory eternal,
Shines on the children of love in the skies.
Note: only these two verses were listed in The Hesperian Harp, and were numbered as above.
