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.Source: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #LXXXIX
