1 Great God, we sing Your guiding hand
by which supported still we stand;
the opening year Your mercy shows;
that mercy crowns it till it close.
2 By day, by night, at home, abroad,
still are we guarded by our God;
by His incessant bounty fed,
by His unerring counsel led.
3 With grateful hearts the past we own;
the future, all to us unknown,
we to Your guardian care commit,
and peaceful leave before Your feet.
4 In scenes exalted or depressed,
You are our joy, You are our rest;
Your goodness all our hopes shall raise,
adored through all our changing days.

Great God, we sing that [Thy] mighty hand. P. Doddridge. [New Year.] Published by J. Orton in the posthumous edition of Doddridge's Hymns, &c, 1755, No. 157, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines, and again with variations in the text, by J. D. Humphreys's edition of the same, 1839, No. 282, the general heading in both being, "Help obtained of God, Acts xxvi. 22. For the New Year. "In some collections it begins, "Great God, we praise Thy mighty hand"; and in others, "Great God, we sing Thy mighty hand." Usually, however, the alterations, both in the English and American hymn-books, are very slight.
