He who brought His ancient people,
With a strong and mighty hand,
Out of all their cruel bondage,
Into Canaan’s promised land.
He has said, and we believe it,
’Tis a promise made of old,
From the trusting and the loving
No good thing will He withhold.
He who led them through the desert,
By the cloud that went before,
He whose goodness never failed them,
Though they grieved Him o’er and o’er.
God is faithful to His promise,
He is mindful of His own;
On our journey to His kingdom
We shall never walk alone.
We shall have His kind protection
And His love as in the past;
Though our days be few or many,
He will guide us to the last.
