|Text:||Great God, We Sing Your Guiding Hand|
1 Great God, we sing Your guiding hand
by which supported still we stand;
the opening year Your mercy shows;
that mercy crowns 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 Your guardian care commit,
and peaceful leave before Your feet.
4 In scenes exalted or depressed,
You are our joy, You are our rest;
Your goodness all our hopes shall raise,
adored through all our changing days.
