Great God, we sing
if you do not hear the tune, click
Great God, we sing that mighty hand,
by which supported, still we stand.
The opening year thy mercy shows;
that mercy crowns it, till it close.
With grateful hearts the past we own.
The future, all to us unknown,
we to thy guardian care commit,
and, peaceful, leave before thy feet.
In scenes exalted or depressed,
thou art our joy, and thou our rest.
Thy goodness all our hopes shall raise,
adored through all our changing days.
