1 Eternal God, we look to Thee
to Thee for help we fly;
Thine eye alone our wants can see,
Thy hand alone supply.
2 Lord, let Thy fear within us dwell,
Thy love our footsteps guide:
That love will all vain love expel;
That fear all fear beside.
3 Not what we wish, but what we want,
Oh, let thy grace supply!
The good unasked in mercy grant;
The ill, though asked, deny.
