O almighty God of love Thy holy arm Thy




O almighty God of love,
Thy holy arm display!
Send me succour from above
In this my evil day;
Arm my weakness with thy power,
Woman's seed, appear within!
Be my safeguard and my tower
Against the face of sin.


Could I of thy strength take hold,
And always feel thee near,
Confident, divinely bold,
My soul would scorn to fear;
Nothing should my firmness shock;
Though the gates of hell assail,
Were I built Upon the rock,
They never could prevail.


Rock of my salvation, haste,
Extend thy ample shade,
Let it over me be cast,
And screen my naked head;
Save me from the trying hour,
Thou my sure protection be;
Shelter me from Satan's power,
Till I am fixed on thee.


Set upon thyself my feet,
And make me surely stand;
From temptation's rage and heat
Cover me with thy hand;
Let me in the cleft be placed,
Ne'er from my defence remove,
In thine arms of love embraced,
Of everlasting love.


---Alternative verses---


O almighty God of love,
Thy holy arm display!
Send me succour from above
Against the evil day;
Arm my weakness with thy power,
Put Thy strength our hearts within!
Be my stronghold and our tower
Against the assaults of sin.


Could we of Thy strength take hold,
And always feel thee near,
Confident, divinely bold,
Our souls would know no fear;
Nothing could their firmness shock;
Though the gates of hell assail,
Were we built upon the rock,
They never could prevail.


Thou would'st in the trying hour,
A sure protection be,
Guard us from temptation's power,
And fix our souls on Thee.
Lord, on Thee our trust is placed;
Never thence may we remove;
In the arms of love embraced,
Thine everlasting love.
