Lyrics

None is like God, who reigns above,
So great, so pure, so high;
None is like God, whose name is Love,
And who is always nigh.

In all the earth there is no spot
Excluded from His care;
We cannot go where God is not,
For He is everywhere.

He is our best and kindest Friend,
And guards us night and day;
To all our wants He will attend,
And answer when we pray.

O if we love Him as we ought,
And on His grace rely,
We shall be joyful at the thought
That God is always nigh.
