Sabbath Psalm (Revision of Franklin Mason North’s hymn, ‘Where Cross the Crowded Ways of Life’)

Where cross the crowded ways of life,
Where sound the cries of race and clan,
Above the din of selfish strife,
We hear Your voice, O Son of man!

In times of wretchedness and need,
On sorrow’s thresholds drenched in tears,
Your crimson words of life we read,
Till hope eclipses all our fears.

O Shepherd, on the mountainside,
Keep us from wolves and crooked men,
And draw more lost sheep to Your side
Till earth is Eden once again!

O wayward hearts receive His love!
And walk the everlasting Way!
Let strands of Heaven’s light above
Shine through the darkness of this day.
