Text Based On John Chapter 14 (KJV)
Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench
all the fiery darts of the wicked.

Cheshire (C.M.) v6/Em
LORD, IN THE MORNING
Lord, in the morning Thou shalt hear
My voice ascending high;
To Thee will I direct my prayer,
To Thee lift up mine eye-
Up to the hills where Christ is gone
To plead for all His saints,
Presenting at His Father's throne
Our songs and our complaints.
My watchful enemies combine
To tempt my feet astray;
They flatter, with a base design
To make my soul their prey.
O may Thy Spirit guide my feet
In ways of righteousness;
Make every path of duty straight
And plain before my face.
Lord, crush the serpent in the dust,
And all his plots destroy;
While those that in Thy mercy trust,
Forever shout for joy.
The men that love and fear Thy name
Shall see their hopes fulfilled;
The mighty God will compass them
With favour as a shield.
