How good is the God we adore,Our faithful unchangeable Friend!His love is as great as His power,And knows neither measure nor end!
’Tis Jesus the First and the Last,Whose Spirit shall Guide us safe home,We’ll praise Him for all that is past,And trust Him for all that’s to come.
O mighty man, why wilt thou boastThyself in hateful cruelty,When God Almighty is most kind,And ever merciful is He?
Thy tongue deviseth wickedness,A weapon treacherous and keen;Thou lovest evil more than good,And falsehood in thy sight is clean.
Since, O thou false, deceitful tongue,In deadly words thou findest joy,The Lord shall pluck thee from thy placeAnd all thy wickedness destroy.
The good, confirmed in godly fear,The pride and folly shall confessOf those who make not God their strength,But trust in wealth and wickedness.
But as for me, my strength is likeA verdant temple olive tree;My trust is in God’s tender love,Which shall endure eternally.
With endless thanks, O Lord, to Thee,Thy wondrous works I will proclaim,And in the presence of Thy saintsWill ever hope in Thy good Name.
