|Text:||All my hope on God is founded|
|Paraphraser:||Robert Bridges, 1844-1930|
1 All my hope on God is founded;
all my trust he will renew,
through all change and chance he guides me,
only good and only true.
calls my heart to be his own.
2 Human pride and earthly glory,
sword and crown betray our trust;
all we build with care and labour,
tower and temple, fall to dust.
But God's power,
hour by hour,
is my temple and my tower.
3 God's great goodness lasts for ever,
deep his wisdom, passing thought:
splendour, light and life attend him,
beauty springing out of naught.
from his store
new-born worlds rise and adore.
4 Daily the almighty giver
will his bounteous gifts bestow;
in his will our souls find pleasure,
leading us where'er we go.
Love will stand
at his hand,
joy shall wait for his command.
5 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 call
one and all:
those who follow shall not fall.
