1 All my hope on God is founded
who will all my trust renew,
safe through change and chance he guides me,
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 God's trust;
though with care and toil we build them,
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 forever,
deep thy wisdom, passing thought;
splendour, light, and life attend him,
beauty springing out of naught.
Evermore from his store
newborn worlds rise and adore.
4 Day by day the mighty Giver
showers gifts on us below;
his desire our souls delight in,
pleasure leads us where we go.
See love stand at his hand,
joy awaits at his command!
5 Still from earth to God in heaven
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.
