Words: James Montgomery, Songs of Zion, Being Imitations of Psalms 1822.
God is my strong salvation: What foe have I to fear?
In darkness and temptation, my light, my help is near.
Though hosts encamp around me, firm in the fight I stand.
What terror can confound me, with God at my right hand?
Place on the Lord reliance; my soul, with courage, wait.
His truth will be my sustenance, when faint and desolate.
His might my heart shall strengthen, His love my joy increase.
Mercy my days shall lengthen; the Lord will give me peace.
