1 To God, our never-failing strength,
With loud applauses sing;
And jointly make a chearful noise
To heav'ns Almighty King.
2 Let heart and voice harmonious join,
And sacred anthems raise,
To celebrate th' appointed time,
Our solemn day of praise.
3 When war, with her sad train of ills,
Had darken'd all the land;
When we had sunk without the help
Of his Almighty Hand,
4 His willing mercy flew to save
His people in distress;
To rescue from oppressive pow'r
And crown us with success.
5 Not unto us, but to our God,
Be all the glory giv'n,
And let his name on earth be prais'd,
And Angels praise in heav;n.
