Representative Text

1 Savior, when we call, O hear us;
In the trying hour be near us,
Lest the foe should prove too strong:
To thy mercy we betake us;
Never leave us, nor forsake us;
Power and grace to Thee belong.

2 Other help than Thine we have not;
Other help than Thine we crave not;
'Tis enough if we have this:
This from every ill secures us;
Every blessing this ensures us;
More than life Thy favor is.

3 Keep us on Thy strength relying,
In Thy name the foe defying;
Till Thy coming bring us peace.
O how sweet the thought, and cheering,
In the day of Thine appearing
Trouble shall for ever cease.
