Who puts his trust in God most just
Hath built his house securely;
He who relies on Jesus Christ,
Shall reach His heav'n most surely;
Then fix'd on Thee my trust shall be,
For Thy truth cannot alter;
While mine Thou art,
Not death's worst smart
Shal make my courage falter.
Though fiercest foes my course oppose,
A dauntless front I'll show them;
My champion Thou, Lord Christ, art now,
Who soon shalt overthrow them!
And if but Thee I have in me
With Thy good gifts and Spirit,
Nor death nor hell, I know full well,
Shall hurt me, through Thy merit.
I rest me here without a fear,
By Thee shall all be given
That I can need, O Friend indeed,
For this life or for heaven.
O make me true, my heart renew,
My soul and flesh deliver!
Lord, hear my prayer, and in Thy care
Keep me in peace for ever.
