Venture all on Thy free grace,
Boldly things not seen achieve,
Trusting in Thy promises.
Faith Thy people’s stronghold is;
Their employment daily this,
To proceed on paths unknown,
Leaning on Thine arm alone.
3 Lord, Thy body ne’er forsake,
Ne’er Thy congregation leave;
We to Thee our refuge take,
Of Thy fullness we receive;
Every other help be gone,
Thou art our Support alone;
For on Thy supreme commands
All the universe depends.
