1 Surely God the Lord is good,
guiding all whose hearts are pure;
at God's hands we take our food,
in God's love we are secure:
vainly do the heathen cry,
'Can the Most High watch us all?'
Shamed by that all - seeing eye
soon the boasting proud will fall.

2 When my stumbling footsteps tire,
strengthen me in all I do
earth has no more I desire;
whom have I in heaven but you?
Though my flesh and heart shall fail,
you supply immortal needs;
with your help I shall prevail
and proclaim your perfect deeds.

3 Yes, this earth - bound fantasy
shall disperse when you arise;
when you come to welcome me
to your home beyond the skies.
Glory be to God today,
every heart by grace forgiven;
souls redeemed and angels say,
Glory in the highest heaven!
