33C. The LORD God from His Throne on High

1 The LORD God from his throne on high
looks down with clear and searching eye
on all that dwell below;
and he that fashioned heart and mind
looks ever down on human-kind,
their hearts and minds to know.
Not human strength or mighty hosts,
not charging steeds or warlike boasts
can save from overthrow;
but God will save from death and shame
all those who fear and trust his name,
and they no want shall know.

2 God's eye is on all those who fear;
to those who hope, the LORD is near,
according to his Word.
Death cannot touch those in his hand,
nor famine conquer in the land;
we wait upon the LORD.
In God our hope is firm and sure,
who makes the joyful heart secure,
our helper strong and true.
Our trust is in your holy name;
your mercy, LORD, in faith we claim,
as we have hoped in you.
