Hymn/Song Information

Thee will I love O Lord my strength My rock my




Thee will I love, O Lord, my strength,
My rock, my tower, my high defence:
Thy mighty arm shall be my trust,
For I have found salvation thence.


Death, and the terrors of the grave,
Stood round me
with their dismal shade;
While floods of high temptations rose,
And made my sinking soul afraid.


I saw the op'ning gates of hell,
With endless pains
and sorrows there,
Which none but they that feel can tell;
While I was hurried to despair.


In my distress I called my God,
When I could scarce
believe him mine:
He bowed his ear to my complaint,
Then did his grace appear divine.


With speed he flew to my relief,
As on a cherub's wing he rode;
Awful and bright as lightning shone
The face of my deliverer, God.


Temptations fled at his rebuke,
The blast of his almighty breath;
He sent salvation from on high,
And drew me from
the deeps of death.


Great were my fears,
my foes were great,
Much was their strength,
and more their rage;
But Christ, my Lord,
is conqueror still,
In all the wars that devils wage.


My song for ever shall record
That terrible, that joyful hour;
And give the glory to the Lord,
Due to his mercy and his power.

In my distress I called my God,
When I could scarce believe him mine:
He bowed his ear to my complaint,
And proved his saving grace divine.
