Verse 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. 
Verse 2
Human pride 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. 
Verse 3
God's great goodness aye endureth, 
deep his wisdom, passing thought: 
splendour, light, and life attend him, 
beauty springeth out of naught. 
from his store 
new-born worlds rise and adore. 
Verse 4
Daily doth th' Almighty giver 
bounteous gifts on us bestow; 
his desire our soul delighteth, 
pleasure leads us where we go. 
Love doth stand 
at his hand; 
joy doth wait on his command. 
Verse 5
Still from earth 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.
