My Helper God I bless His Name




Our Helper, God, we bless Thy Name,
Whose love forever is the same;
The tokens of Whose gracious care
Begin and crown and close the year.


Amid ten thousand snares we stand,
Supported by Thy guardian hand;
And see, when we review our ways,
Ten thousand monuments of praise.


Thus far Thine arm has led us on;
Thus far we make Thy mercy known;
And while we tread this desert land,
New mercies shall new songs demand.


Our grateful souls on Jordanís shore
Shall raise one sacred pillar more,
Then bear, in Thy bright courts above,
Inscriptions of immortal love.


Our grateful souls on Jordanís shore
Shall raise one sacred pillar more,
Then borne to his bright courts above,
Adore him with immortal love.

My helper, God, I bless his name;
The same his power, his grace the same;
The tokens of his friendly care
Open, and crown, and close the year.


Our Helper, God, we bless His Name,
Whose love for ever is the same;
The tokens of his guardian care
Open and crown, and close the year.

The same thy power, his grace the same;
The tokens of his friendly care
Open, and crown, and close the year.


Amidst ten thousand snares we stand,
Supported by Thy gracious hand;
And see, when we survey our ways,
Ten thousand monuments of praise.


I midst ten thousand dangers stand,
Supported by Thy guardian hand;
And see, when I survey my ways,
Ten thousand monuments of praise.


Thus far his arm hath led us on;
Thus far we make his mercy known;
And, while we tread this desert land,
New mercies shall new songs demand.


My grateful soul on Jordan's shore
Shall raise one sacred pillar more;
Then bear in his bright courts above,
Inscriptions of immortal love.
