1 We trust in you, our shield and our defender;
we do not fight alone against the foe:
strong in your strength, safe in your keeping tender,
we trust in you, and in your name we go.
Strong in your strength, safe in your keeping tender,
we trust in you, and in your name we go.

2 We trust in you, O Captain of salvation!
in your dear name, all other names above:
Jesus our righteousness, our sure foundation,
our prince of glory and our king of love.
Jesus our righteousness, our sure foundation,
our prince of glory and our king of love.

3 We go in faith, our own great weakness feeling,
and needing more each day your grace to know;
yet from our hearts a song of triumph pealing,
'We trust in you, and in your name we go.'
Yet from our hearts a song of triumph pealing,
'We trust in you, and in your name we go.'

4 We trust in you, our shield and our defender:
yours is the battle yours shall be the praise!
When passing through the gates of dazzling splendour,
victors, we rest in you through endless days.
When passing through the gates of dazzling splendour,
victors, we rest in you through endless days.
