1 Lord, you have been our dwelling-place
in every generation;
your people have received your grace,
and blessed your consolation;
through every age you heard our cry;
through every age we found you nigh,
our strength and our salvation.
2 Persisting sins we long have wept,
your patience long have tested;
but steadfast faith in you we kept,
still to your name devoted:
for you have kept and loved us well,
and granted us in you to dwell,
from your love never parted.
3 Lord, nothing from your arms so sure
shall your own people sever;
our helper ever will endure,
God's love will fail us never.
Your people, Lord, have dwelt in you;
and you remain our dwelling true
for ever and for ever.
