A Sov’reign Protector I have, Unseen, yet forever at hand, Unchangeably faithful to save, Almighty to rule and command. He smiles, and my comforts
abound; His grace as the dew shall descend; And walls of salvation surround The soul He delights to defend.
Inspirer and Hearer of prayer, Thou Shepherd and Guardian of Thine, My all to Thy covenant care I sleeping and waking resign. If Thou art my Shield and my Sun,
The night is no darkness to me; And fast as my moments roll on, They bring me but nearer to Thee.
Kind Author, and ground of my hope, Thee, Thee, for my God I avow; My glad Ebenezer set up, And own Thou hast helped me till now. I muse on the years that are
past, Wherein my defense Thou hast proved; Nor wilt Thou relinquish at last A sinner so signally loved!
