For thy mercy and thy grace

For thy mercy and thy grace,
constant through another year,
hear our song of thankfulness;
Jesus, our Redeemer, hear.

Lo! our sins on thee we cast,
thee, our perfect sacrifice;
and, forgetting all the past,
press towards our glorious prize.

Dark the future: let thy light
guide us, bright and morning Star:
fierce our foes, and hard the fight;
arm us, Savior, for the war.

In our weakness and distress,
Rock of strength, be thou our stay;
in the pathless wilderness
be our true and living way.

Who of us death's awful road
in the coming year shall tread?
with thy rod and staff, O God,
comfort thou his dying bed.

Keep us faithful, keep us pure,
keep us evermore thine own;
help, O help us to endure;
fit us for the promised crown.

So within Thy palace gate
We shall praise, on golden strings,
Thee the only Potentate,
Lord of lords, and King of kings.
