1 For your mercy and your grace
faithful through another year,
hear our song of thankfulness,
Saviour and Redeemer, hear.

2 All our sins on you we cast,
you, our perfect Sacrifice;
and, forgetting what is past,
press towards our glorious prize.

3 Dark the future let your light
guide us, bright and morning Star;
fierce the battles we must fight
arm us, Saviour, for the war!

4 In our weakness and distress,
be our Rock, O Lord, we pray;
in the pathless wilderness,
be our true and living Way.

5 Keep us faithful, keep us pure,
keep us evermore your own;
help, O help us to endure,
make us fit to wear the crown!
