Hymn/Song Information

Great God we sing that mighty hand By which




Great God, we sing Your mighty hand
By which supported still we stand;
The opening year Your mercy shows,
That mercy crowns it ítil its close.


By day, by night, at home, abroad,
Still are we guarded by our God,
By His incessant bounty fed,
By His unerring counsel led.


With grateful hearts the past we own;
The future, all to us unknown,
We to Thy guardian care commit,
And peaceful leave before Thy feet.


In scenes exalted or depressed,
You are our joy, and You our rest;
Your goodness all our hopes shall raise,
Adored through all our changing days.


When death shall interrupt our songs
And seal in silence mortal tongues,
In fairer realms, O God, shall we
Your praises sing eternally.


---Alternative verses---


In scenes exalted or depressed,
Thou art joy, and thou our rest;
Thy goodness all our hopes shall raise,
Adored through all our changing days.


In scenes exalted or depressed,
Be thou our joy, and thou our rest;
Thy goodness all our hopes shall raise,
Adored through all our changing days.


Though death shall interrupt our songs
And seal in silence mortal tongues,
Our helper, God, in whom we trust
In better worlds our souls shall boast.
