1 We trust in you, our shield and our defender;
we do not fight alone against the foe:
strong in your strength, safe in your keeping tender,
we trust in you, and in your name we go.
2 We trust in you, O captain of salvation--
in your dear name, all other names above:
Jesus, our righteousness, our sure foundation,
our prince of glory and our king of love.
3 We go in faith, our own great weakness feeling,
and needing more each day your grace to know;
yet from our hearts a song of triumph pealing,
"We trust in you, and in your name we go."
4 We trust in you, our shield and our defender:
yours is the battle--yours shall be the praise!
When passing through the gates of dazzling splendor,
victors, we rest in you through endless days.
