479. All My Hope on God is Founded

1 All my hope on God is founded,
All my trust he shall renew;
He, my guide through changing order,
Only good and only true:
God unknown,
He alone,
Calls my heart to be his own.

2 Human pride and earthly glory,
Sword and crown betray his trust;
What with care and toil we fashion,
Tow'r and temple, fall to dust;
But God's pow'r
Hour by hour
Is my temple and my tower.

3 Day by day our mighty giver
Grants to us his gifts of love;
In his will our souls find pleasure,
Leading to our home above:
Love shall stand
At his hand,
Joy shall wait for his command.

4 Still from earth to God eternal
Sacrifice of praise be done;
High above all praises praising
For the gift of Christ his Son:
Hear Christ's call,
One and all,
We who follow shall not fall.
