O Thou, whose power stupendous
Upholds the earth and sky,
Thy grace preserving send us,—
To Thee, O Lord! we cry.

From wilds of fearful error,
Wherein we darkly stray,
Oppressed with doubt and terror,
For saving aid we pray.

O God of mercy, hear us!
Our pain, our sorrow, see;
Thy healing pity spare us,
And bring us home to Thee!
