1 In God, my Savior,
I put my trust alone;
His word and favor
My help in need I own;
My life I tender,
And all I have as well,
In full surrender
To Thee, who grace I tell,
My soul's befriender,
My God, Immanuel.

2 The loss sin wrought me,
Through Satan's wiles, O Lord,
Thou, who hast bought me,
Hast all by grace restored:
My thanks I render,
Myself to Thee I yield,
My Savior tender,
My rock, my sun and shield,
My soul's defender,
On Thee my hopes I build.

3 Keep me Thy servant,
Let me obey Thee, Lord,
In spirit fervent,
According to Thy word;
When doth forsake me
The frowning world for aye,
And suff'rings shake me,
Grant patience, be my stay,
Until Thou take me
From this ill world away.

4 My consolation
Thou art in every need,
For my salvation
Thou on the cross didst bleed;
In heaven dwelling,
I shall, when past all pain,
Thy praise be telling,
O Lamb for sinners slain!
When, anthems swelling,
I sing the angels' strain.

5 O faithful Savior,
My sweetest rest and stay!
O let me never
From Thee in darkness stray!
My soul deliver,
And guide Thy weary dove,
By grace and favor,
Home to the place I love--
My home forever--
Jerusalem above.

6 There, past life's sadness,
'Tis good to be at rest,
In joy and gladness,
With saints forever blest;
Lord, let me ever
Walk in Thy faith and fear,
That, past death's river,
I may Thy welcome hear:
"Come, blest forever,
Come in, my servant dear!"
