All my hope on God is founded
Tune: Groeswen
Metre: 8787 337

 

All my hope on God is founded;

He doth still my trust renew.

Me through change and chance he guideth,

Only good and only true.

God unknown,

He alone

Calls my heart to be his own.

 

Pride of man and earthly glory,

Sword and crown betray his trust;

What with care and toil he buildeth,

Tower and temple, fall to dust.

But Godís power,

Hour by hour,

Is my temple and my tower.

 

Godís great goodness aye endureth,

Deep his wisdom passing thought:

Splendour, light and life attend him,

Beauty springeth out of naught.

Evermore,

From his store

New-born worlds rise and adore.

 

Daily doth the Almighty Giver

Bounteous gifts on us bestow;

His desire our soul delighteth,

Pleasure leads us where we go.

Love doth stand

At his hand

Joy doth wait on his command.

 

Still from man to God eternal

Sacrifice of praise be done,

High above all praises praising

For the gift of Christ his Son.

Christ doth call

One and all:

Ye who follow shall not fall.
