And he our shade,
To guard the head
By night or noon.
 
3 God is the only Lord,
Our shield and our defence;
With gifts his hand is stor’d:
We draw our blessings thence.
He will bestow
On Jacob’s race,
Peculiar grace,
And glory too.
 
Hymn 9 • From the regions of glory an angel descended
HYMN 9. P. M.
 
1 From the regions of glory an angel descend ed,
And told the strange news how the babe  was attended:
Go, shepherds, and visit this heavenly  stranger;
Beneath that bright star, there’s your Lord  in a manger!
Hallelujah to the Lamb,
Whom our souls may rely on:
We shall see him on earth,
When he brings again Zion.
 
2 Glad tidings I bring unto you and each na tion; [p. 15]
And he our shade,
To guard the head
By night or noon.
 
3 God is the only Lord,
Our shield and our defence;
With gifts his hand is stor’d:
We draw our blessings thence.
He will bestow
On Jacob’s race,
Peculiar grace,
And glory too.
