Hymn/Song Information

In thee I put my steadfast trust Defend

In thee I put my steadfast trust,
defend me, Lord, from shame;
Incline thine ear, and save my soul,
for righteous is thy Name.

Be thou my strong abiding place,
to which I may resort;
'Tis thy decree that keeps me safe;
thou art my rock and fort.

From cruel and ungodly men
protect and set me free;
For, from my earliest youth till now,
my hope has been in thee.

Thy constant care did safely guard
my tender infant days;
Thou took'st me from my mother's womb
to sing thy constant praise.

While some on me with wonder gaze,
thy hand supports me still;
Thy honor, therefore, and thy praise
my mouth shall always fill.

Reject not then thy servant, Lord,
When I with age decay,
Forsake me not when, worn with years,
my vigor fades away.

My foes against my fame and me
with crafty malice speak;
Against my soul they lay their Snares,
and mutual counsel take.

His God, say they, forsakes him now,
on whom he did rely;
Pursue and take him, whilst no hope
of timely aid is nigh.

But thou, my God, withdraw not far,
for speedy help I call
To shame and ruin bring my foes,
that seek to work my fall

But as for me, my steadfast hope
shall on thy pow'r depend
And I in grateful songs of praise
my time to come will spend.
