I. Great God! in Thee I put my Trust,
Preserve my soul from being lost
In Shame and Desolation;
Thy Grace, O Lord I, will record
To ev'ry Generation.
II. Vouchsafe to lend a gracious Ear,
When I to Thee direct my Pray'r;
Relieve thy helpless Creature;
From outward Woes and secret Foes
Redeem my fallen Nature.
III. Thy saving Name is my Defence;
I seek and draw Salvation thence;
Thy Grace is my Pavillion;
thou art the God, whose very Nod
Can crush an hostile Million.
IV. My Rock, my Refuge, and my Tow'r!
I rest upon thy mighty Pow'r,
And trust thy Revelation:
In thy Relief I drown my Grief
'Gainst Satan's Machination.
V. Whate'er my Fears and foes suggest,
Thou art my Hope, my Joy, my Rest,
My Boast and sure protection.
Within thy Care I boldly dare
Th' whole World and Hell's Infection.
VI. My Spirit I commit to Thee.
My Saviour, ne'er depart from me,
But grant me thy Salvation.
In th' Hour of Death retake my Breath
Into thy Habitation.
VII. All Honour Might and Majesty
To Father, Son and Spirit be,
The Three for ever glorious;
In whose rich Grace we'll run our Race,
Till we come off victorious.
