Hymn/Song Information

GOD'S UNIVERSAL PRESENCE




Should hostile powers against me join,
I have a helper all divine;
To him my soul shall quickly fly,
On him my steadfast faith rely.


Torn from th’ embraces of my friends,
Exiled to earth’s remotest ends;
Yet would I live devoid of fear,
Knowing that God is present there.


Laden with guilt, o’erwhelmed with grief,
From him I seek and find relief;
When dread alarms spread all around,
In him alone is succour found.


When outward comforts are withdrawn,
I am content with him alone;
No real loss can me befall,
For he is mine, and he is all.


He’s ever good, and ever nigh,
he lives when worlds of creatures die;
This glorious God will ever be,
Sufficient for himself and me.
