Hymn 420Play music
1 Great God,we praise Thy mighty hand,
By which supported still we stand;
The opening year Thy mercy shows,
That mercy crown it till it close.
2 By day,by night, at home,abroad,
Still are we guarded by our God;
By His incessant bounty fed,
By His unerring counsel led.
3 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.
4 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.
