1 Savior of men, we bless thy name,
For thou art good forevermore;
Thy power and grace we would proclaim,
And thine eternal love adore.
2 Thy glory shall forever stand,
Thy truth remains both firm and sure;
Our souls we venture in thine hand,
And there we know we are secure.
3 Though troubles come and sorrows rise,
We will not fear for God's our aid;
Ill tidings cannot these surprise
Who are upon Jehovah stayed.
4 Glory to Christ our faithful friend;
(He is the Lord whom angels fear)
On him we always would depend,
And in his righteousness appear.
5 We love the Lord our God most high,
His grace demands our noblest song;
All praise to Christ who came to die,
To him all glory doth belong.
