O God, my heavenly King,
My Savior, and my all,
To Thee my every power I bring,
And at Thy footstool fall.

By Thee I am supplied
With every good below:
Thou art my shepherd and my guide,
In all the way I go.

Fain would I follow Thee,
Nor from Thy footsteps stray,
Whate’er my pains or conflicts be,
Or snares my foes may lay.

I know that Thou art nigh,
My fortress, shield and tower:
On Thy rich mercy I’ll rely,
And trust Thy mighty power.
