Representative Text

1 Hitherto the Lord has helped me,
All the way His hand has led me
Safely through;
He the victory has given,
Still the same,
When the battle seemed the fiercest;
Praise His name.

2 When the days were overshadowed,
Like the night,
Then to me there came a vision,
All was light;
And that light will shine more clearly
From above;
Still His banner will be o’er me,
Which is love.
