All my hope on God


    • All my hope on God is founded; 
    • he doth still my trust renew, 
    • me through change and chance he guideth, 
    • only good and only true. 
    • God unknown, he alone 
    • calls my heart to be his own. 

    • Pride of man and earthly glory, 
    • sword and crown betray his trust; 
    • what with care and toil he buildeth, 
    • tower and temple, fall to dust. 
    • But God's pow'r, hour by hour, 
    • is my temple and my tower. 

    • God's great goodness aye endureth, 
    • deep his wisdom, passing thought: 
    • splendour, life, and light attend him, 
    • beauty springeth out of naught. 
    • Evermore from his store 
    • new-born worlds rise and adore. 

    • Daily doth th'almighty giver 
    • bounteous gifts on us bestow; 
    • his desire our soul delighteth, 
    • pleasure leads us where we go. 
    • Love doth stand at his hand; 
    • joy doth wait on his command. 

    • Still from man to God eternal 
    • sacrifice of praise be done, 
    • high above all praises praising 
    • for the gift of Christ his Son. 
    • Christ doth call one and all: 
    • ye who follow shall not fall
