Lyrics

The God who made both Hea­ven and earth
And all that they contain
Will ne­ver quit His steadfast truth
Nor make His promise vain.

The poor and all oppressed by wrong
Are saved by His decree;
He gives the hungry needful food
And sets the captive free.

By Him the blind receive their sight,
By Him the fallen rise;
With constant care, His tender love
All human need supplies.
