H.VII. Christ our strength

1 Oh, let me hear my Saviour say,
Thy strength be equal to thy day,
Then I'll rejoice in deep distress,
And trust secure his sovereign grace.

2 My weakness shall my glory prove,
That power may aid me from above;
When flesh is weak, my soul is strong;
Be grace my shield and Christ my song.

3 All things I do, all sufferings bear
While God, my strength is with me here;
But, he withdrawn, temptations reign,
And pains and weakness rise again.

4 So Sampson, when his locks were lost,
First bow'd beneath Philistia's host;
Shook his vain limbs with sore surprise,
Made feeble fight, and lost his eyes.
