and mark our journeys right,
and give a leading cloud by day,
a fiery guide by night.

God blessed the race of Abraham,

The endless mercies of the Lamb
shall prove that grace endures.

Then let the world give up its rage,
nor put a church in fear;
let lives be lived through every age
in the Almighty's care.
