227. Not Unto Us, O Lord of Heaven

1 Not unto us, O Lord of Heaven,
But unto You be glory given.
In love and truth You do fulfill
The counsels of Your sovereign will;
Though nations fail Your power to own,
Yet You still reign, and You alone.

2 The idol gods of heathen lands
Are but the work of human hands;
They cannot see, they cannot speak,
Their ears are deaf, their hands are weak;
Like them shall be all those who hold
To gods of silver and of gold.

3 Let Israel trust in God alone,
The Lord whose grace and power are known;
To God your full allegiance yield,
That one will be your help and shield;
All those who fear God will be blest,
His saints have proved God's faithfulness.
