1 For thy mercy and thy grace,
faithful through another year,
hear our song of thankfulness;,
Jesus, our Redeemer, hear.
2 In our weakness and distress,
Rock of Strength, be thou our stay;
in the pathless wilderness
be our true and living Way.
3 Keep us faithful, keep us pure,
keep us evermore thine own.
Help, O help us to endure,
fit us for thy promised crown.
4 So within thy palace gate
we shall praise on golden strings
thee, the only potentate,
Lord of lords and King of kings.
