2 Did we in our own strength confide,

Our striving would be losing;
Were not the right Man on our side,

The Man of God's own choosing.
Dost ask Who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth is His name,
From age to age the same,

And He must win the battle.
3 And though this world, with devils

filled,
Should threaten to undo us;
We will not fear, for God hath willed
His truth to triumph through us.

404

The prince of darkness grim,
We tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure,
For lo! his doom is sure,

One little word shall fell him! 4 That word above all earthly powers,

No thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours

Through Him Who with us sideth.
Let goods and kindred go,
This mortal life also:
The body they may kill:
God's truth abideth still,

His kingdom is forever. Amen. MARTIN LUTHER. Tr. FREDERICK H. Hedge

What ter- ror can con - found me, With God at my right hand?

2 Place on the Lord reliance,

My soul, with courage wait;
His truth be thine affiance,

When faint and desolate:
His might thine heart shall strengthen,

His love thy joy increase;
Mercy thy days shall lengthen,
The Lord will give thee peace. Amen.

God, to Thee, Near - er, my God, to Thee, Near - er to Thee.

A - men.

5 Or if on joyful wing,

Cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,

Upward I fly,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee. Amen.

3 Whate'er events betide,

Thy will they all perform:

4 Let good or ill befall,

It must be good for me;
Secure in having Thee in all,
Of having all in Thee. Amen.
