1910. God of the Strong, God of the Weak

1. God of the strong, God of the weak,
Lord of all lands and our own land;
Light of all souls, from Thee we seek
Light from Thy light, strength from Thy hand.

2. In suffering Thou hast made us one,
In mighty burdens one are we:
Teach us that lowliest duty done
Is highest service unto Thee.

3. Teach us, great Teacher of mankind
The sacrifice that brings Thy balm;
The love, the work that bless and bind;
Teach us Thy majesty, Thy calm.

4. Teach Thou, and we shall know indeed
The truth divine that maketh free;
And knowing, we may sow the seed
That blossoms through eternity.
