On thee, O God , we still depend

On thee, O God , we still depend

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 On thee, O God! we still depend,
Our father and our constant friend;
All that is good thou can'st supply,
And put all threat'ning evil by.

2 Should wars on ev'ry side invade,
We'll shelter seek beneath thy shade;
We'll trust to thy paternal care,
Nor want, nor harm, nor danger fear.

3 We'll still refer ourselves to thee,
And with our lot contented be;
With one consenting heart and voice,
Approve our heav'nly father's choice.

4 From earth we'll turn our longing eyes,
To regions far beyond the skies;
O fit us for that blest abode,
Where dwells our Father and our God.
