473. Let Earth and Heaven Witness Now

1 Let earth and heaven witness now,
before the Lord we speak;
to him we make our solemn vow,
a vow we dare not break,

2 that, long as life itself shall last,
ourselves to Christ we yield,
nor from his cause will we depart,
nor ever quit the field.

3 We trust not in our native strength,
but on his grace rely,
that with returning wants, the Lord
will all our need supply.

4 O guide our doubtful feet aright,
and keep us in thy ways,
and while we turn our vows to prayers,
turn thou our prayers to praise.
