Whom have we, Lord, in heaven but thee,

And whom on earth beside?

Where else for succour can we flee,

Or in whose strength confide?


Thou art our portion here below,

Our promised bliss above;

Ne’er may our souls an object know

So precious as thy love.


When heart and flesh, O Lord, shall fail,

Thou wilt our spirits cheer,

Support us through life’s thorny vale,

And calm each anxious fear.


Yes, thou shalt be our guide through life,

And help and strength supply;

Sustain us in death’s fearful strife,

And welcome us on high.
