Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

655. All My Hope on God Is Founded

1 All my hope on God is founded;
who doth still my trust renew:
I through change and chance am guided,
only good and only true.
God unknown,
God alone
calls my heart eternally home.

2 Human pride and earthly glory,
sword and crown, betray our trust;
what with care and toil is built up,
tower and temple, fall to dust.
But God's power,
hour by hour,
is my temple and my tower.

3 Daily doth the almighty giver
bounteous gifts on us bestow.
God's desire our soul delighteth,
pleasure leads us where we go.
Love doth stand
hand in hand;
joy doth wait on God's command.

4 God's great goodness eye endureth,
deepest wisdom, passing thought:
splendour, light and life attending,
beauty springeth out of naught.
from God's store
new-born worlds rise and adore.
