5 ~ All My Hope On God Is Founded



1

All my hope on God is founded;
He doth still my trust renew,
Me through change and chance He guideth,
Only good and only true.
God unknown, He alone
Calls my heart to be His own.


2

Pride of man and earthly glory,
Sword and crown betray his trust;
What with care and toil he buildeth,
Tower and temple fall to dust.
But God's power, hour by hour,
Is my temple and my tower.


3

God's great goodness aye endureth,
Deep His wisdom, passing thought:
Splendor, light, and life attend Him,
Beauty springeth out of naught.
Love doth stand at His hand;
Joy doth wait on His command.


4

Still from man to God eternal
Sacrifice of praise be done,
High above all praises praising
For the gift of Christ His son.
Christ doth call one and all:
Ye who follow shall not fall.
