12637. God Of Our Salvation

1 God of our salvation, unto Thee we pray;
Hear our supplication, be our strength and stay;
Wretched and unworthy, poor, and sick, and blind,
Prostrate we adore Thee, call Thy grace to mind.

2 He that dwelleth near Thee safely shall abide;
Ever love and fear Thee, in Thy strength confide:
Sure is Thy protection, safe is Thy defense,
While in deep affliction, woe or pestilence.

3 God of our salvation, Savior, Prince of peace,
Boundless Thy compassion, infinite Thy grace:
While with love unceasing, humbly we adore,
Grant us Thy rich blessing, and we ask no more.
