33. The Lord hath Helped Me Hitherto

1 The Lord hath helped me hitherto
By His surpassing favor;
His mercies ev'ry morn were new,
His kindness did not waver.
God hitherto hath been my Guide,
Hath pleasures hitherto supplied,
And hitherto hath helped me.

2 I praise and thank Thee, Lord, my God,
For Thine abundant blessing
Which heretofore Thou hast bestowed
And I am still possessing.
Inscribe this on my memory:
The Lord hath done great things for me
And graciously hath helped me.

3 Help me henceforth, O God of grace,
Help me on each occasion,
Help me in each and ev'ry place,
Help me thro' Jesus' Passion;
Help me in life and death, O God,
Help me thro' Jesus' dying blood;
Help me as Thou hast helped me!

Amen.
