1 My God, thy mercies gird me round,
Thy help is ever near,
And all thy gifts to me abound;
I have no cause for fear.

For I am thine and thou art mine,
Saviour ever near;
O fill my heart with perfect love,
Banish ev’ry fear.

2 By day by night, by shade by light
I have thy shelt’ring wing;
And in thine all-surrounding might
I trust, I rest, I sing. [Refrain]

3 I’ll praise the Lord for mercies past,
For mercies yet to come,
For sure thy goodness still shall last
Till thou shalt bring me home. [Refrain]

4 Home, where my hopes are anchor’d fast,
Home, where my friends have gone,
And where I too shall rest at last,
When toils and tears are done. [Refrain]
