O God, our strength, to thee the song

With grateful hearts we raise;

To thee, and thee alone, belong

All worship, love, and praise.


In trouble’s dark and stormy hour,

Thine ear hath heard our prayer;

And graciously thine arm of power

Hath saved us from despair.


And thou, O ever gracious Lord,

Wilt keep thy promises still,

If, meekly hearkening to thy word,

We seek to do thy will.


Led by the light thy grace imparts,

Ne’er may we bow the knee

To idols, which our wayward hearts

Set up instead of thee.


So shall thy choicest gifts, O Lord,

Thy faithful people bless;

For them shall earth its stores afford,

And Heaven its happiness.
