1 We sing to you, O God,
the Rock who gave us birth,
let our rejoicing
sing your name in all the earth.
To you, O God, let songs be raised,
in joyful hymns, our feast of praise.
2 We wandered far from home
out in a desert land,
you shielded with your love
our fearful pilgrim band.
You kept us safe within your arms
and sheltered us against the storm.
3 You bear us through the world,
an eagle to its young;
you rise up on your wings
and bear us toward the sun.
We ride the vaults of light and air
and trust in your unfailing care.
4 O God, eternal God,
we hide within your wings,
the everlasting arms
to whom our praises ring.
Your word is true, your way is just,
you are the God in whom we trust.
