The Goodness of God

The Lord is strong to help the weak

Published in 3 hymnals

Full Text

1 The Lord is strong to help the weak,
Upholding those that fall,
Restoring those bowed down with grief,
And doing good to all.

2 Thy creatures look to Thee for food,
From day to day supplied,
And Thou dost for their sustenance
With open hand provide.

3 The Lord is right in all His ways,
His works His love declare,
And He is night to every one
That breathes the trustful prayer.

4 The hope of those that fear His Name
The Lord will satisfy;
Their mighty Savior He will be
When unto Him they cry.

5 All those that set their love on Him
Shall full salvation know,
But wicked men and wicked ways
The Lord will overthrow.

6 My mouth shall bless the Lord my God
And all His praise proclaim;
Let all unite for evermore
To bless His holy Name.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
