57. Great God, We Sing That Mighty Hand

1 Great God, we sing that mighty hand
by which supported still we stand;
the opening year thy mercy shows;
thy mercy crowns it till it close.

2 By day, by night, at home, abroad,
still are we guarded by our God,
by his incessant bounty fed,
by his unerring counsel led.

3 With grateful hearts the past we own;
the future, all to us unknown,
we to thy guardian care commit,
and peaceful leave before thy feet.

4 In scenes exalted or depressed,
thou art our joy, and thou our rest;
thy goodness all our hopes shall raise,
adored through all our changing days.
