Jehovah from His throne on high
Looks down with clear and searching eye
On all that dwell below;
And He that fashioned heart and mind
Looks ever down on all mankind,
The works of men to know.
Not human strength nor mighty hosts,
Not charging steeds or warlike boasts
Can save from overthrow;
But God will save from death and shame
All those who fear and trust His name,
And they no want shall know.
His eye is on all those who fear;
To those who hope, the Lord is near
According to His word.
Death cannot touch those in his hand,
Nor famine conquer in the land;
We wait upon the Lord.
Our hope is on Jehovah stayed,
In Him our hearts are joyful made,
Our help and shield is He;
Our trust is in His holy name,
Thy mercy, Lord, in faith we claim,
As we have hoped in Thee.
