Great God, We Sing That Mighty Hand

Lyrics ~ Philip Doddridge, 1702 - 1751

Music ~ George J. Elvey, 1816 - 1893



Stanza 1:

Great God, we sing that mighty hand

By which supported still we stand.

The opening year Thy mercy shows;

Let mercy crown it till it close.



Stanza 2:

By day, by night, at home, abroad,

Still we are guarded by our God,

By His incessant bounty fed,

By His unerring counsel led.



Stanza 3:

With grateful hearts the past we own;

The future, all to us unknown,

We to Thy guardian care commit

And, peaceful, leave before Thy feet.



Stanza 4:

In scenes exalted or depressed

Be Thou our Joy and Thou our Rest.

Thy goodness all our hopes shall raise,

Adored through all our changing days.



Stanza 5:

When death shall interrupt our songs,

And seal in silence mortal tongues,

Our Helper, God, in whom we trust,

In better worlds our soul shall boast.
