Great God, defend us in this storm

Great God, defend us in this storm

Published in 3 hymnals

Full Text

1 Great God defend us in this storm,
What blasts and thunder roar!
Since thou canst keep m life from harm
In this tremendous hour.

2 Alarming thus to view the skies,
Such gloomy aspects wear;
The fearful lightning darts and flies,
And dazzles all the air.

3 Dear Lord this casts my spirits down,
When thus it is the case;
To hear such threats and see such frowns,
In this alarmed place.

4 Much more my soul should feel afraid.
Yea, I should quite despair'
Was not my hopes on Jesus stay'd,
Who guards me ev'ry where.

5 When Satan with his storms prevail,
aAnd tries his art and power;
Let not my trust in Jesus fail,
Nor give up evermore!
