1 O God, my Strength and Fortitude,
Of force I must love thee;
Thou art my Castle and Defence
In my necessity;
2 My God, my Rock, in whom I trust,
The worker of my wealth,
My Refuge, Buckler, and my Shield,
The horn of all my health.
3 I, when beset with pain and grief,
Did pray to God for grace;
And he forthwith did hear my plaint
Out of his holy place.
4 The Lord descended from above
And bowed the heavens high,
And underneath his feet he cast
The darkness of the sky.
5 On cherub and on cherubim
Full royally he rode,
And on the wings of all the winds
Came flying all abroad.
6 Unspotted are the ways of God,
His word is purely tried;
He is a sure defence to such
As in his faith abide.
