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.
