Hail, gracious Source of every good,

Our Saviour and defence,

Thou art our glory, and our shield,

Our help and confidence.


When anxious fears disturb the breast,

When threatening foes are nigh,

To thee we pour our deep complaint,

To thee we for succour fly.


Jesus, or Lord–our only hope,

Before thy throne we bow:

Thou art our strength–and thou the Rock

Whence living waters flow.
