1.  Great God, we sing that mighty hand,

By which supported still we stand;

The opening year Thy mercy shows;

That mercy crown it till it close.

2.  By day, by night, at home, abroad,

Still we are guarded by our God;

By His incessant bounty fed,

By His unerring counsel led.

3.  With grateful hearts the past the own;

The future, all to us unknown,

We to Thy guardian care commit,

And peaceful leave before Thy feet.

4.  In scenes exalted or depressed,

Thou art our Joy, and Thou our Rest;

Thy goodness all our hopes shall raise,

Adored through all our changing days.
