GOD OUR REFUGE




Come now with joy and singing,
Loud hallelujahs ringing,
Our grateful tribute bringing
To our almighty Friend;
Offering with purest pleasure,
To Him the heart’s full treasure,
Whose love no thought can measure,
Whose praise shall never end.

We sing with exultation,
Lord God of our salvation;
Thou art our sure Foundation,
Our Refuge evermore.



When to this Refuge flying,
Turn sinners, helpless, dying,
On Christ alone relying,
No harm can reach them there;
When floods of grief are dashing,
And waves of sorrow splashing,
Light to the soul comes flashing—
God’s smile through dark despair.

We sing with exultation,
Lord God of our salvation;
Thou art our sure Foundation,
Our Refuge evermore.



In waking or in sleeping,
Bright days, or nights of weeping,
Our souls are in Thy keeping
While here we wait below;
In Thee alone abiding,
And in Thy love confiding,
Safe when Thy hand is guiding,
We’ll ever gladly go.

We sing with exultation,
Lord God of our salvation;
Thou art our sure Foundation,
Our Refuge evermore.
