568. God is my strong Salvation

1 God is my strong Salvation;
What foe have I to fear?
In darkness and temptation
My Light, my Help is near.

2 Though hosts encamp around me,
Firm to the fight I stand;
What terror can confound me,
With God at my right hand?

3 Place on the Lord reliance,
My soul, with courage wait;
His truth be thine affiance,
When faint and desolate.

4 His might thy heart shall strengthen,
His love thy joy increase;
Mercy thy days shall lengthen;
The Lord will give thee peace.
