Hymn/Song Information

On thee alone O God we wait When sorrow




On thee alone, O God, we wait,
When sorrow makes us desolate;
To thee alone we love to fly,
When danger and distress are nigh.


Thou art our Rock, whose height sublime
Nor force nor fraud can ever climb;
The refuge which thy people seek,
The strength and safety of the weak.


Protected by thy power and grace,
We want no better hiding-place;
And when oppressed by earthly care,
Pour out our hearts to thee in prayer.


Vain were the help of every friend,
Shouldst thou not comfort and defend;
And if thou spreadíst thy shield around,
Nor man can harm nor Satan wound.


O great, O good, beyond compare,
Since thou dost make us thus thy care,
Thy servants may we live an die,
Then praise thee to eternity.
