O Thou Almighty God,
Creator of us all;
Help us to praise and magnify
Thy holy name o’er all.

O Thou Almighty God,
Thy mercy we implore;
Keep us within Thy tender care,
And plenteous joys bestow.

O, lead us on, dear Lord,
Our hand still clasped in Thine,
Until we reach the pearly shores
Of Heav’n’s abode divine.

O then what happiness
Awaits the Chris­tian there;
No more life’s bitter woes to share
In glo­ry-land so fair.
