1 God of truth! Thy sons should be
Firmly grounded upon Thee;
Ever on the Rock abide,
High above the changing tide.
2 Theirs is the unwavering mind,
No more tossed with every wind;
No more doth their ’stablished heart
From the living God depart.
3 Father, strengthen Thou my will;
With Thine own steadfastness fill;
Rooted, grounded, may I be,
Fixed in Thy stability.
4 Henceforth may I nobly stand;
Build no longer on the sand;
But defy temptation’s shock,
Firmly grounded on the Rock.
