Great God, We Sing that Mighty Hand

Text:  Philip Doddridge 
Music:  William Knapp  1738
Tune:  Wareham  88.88
OHT Incipit:  

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.

By day, by night, at home, abroad,
Still are we guarded by our God;
By His incessant bounty fed,
By His unerring counsel led.

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.
