1.WE come unto our fathers' God;
Their Rock is our salvation;
The eternal arms, their dear abode,
We make our habitation; We  bring Thee,
Lord, the praise they brought;
We seek Thee as Thy saints have sought
In every generation.

2.The Are divine their steps that led
Still goeth bright before us;
The heavenly shield around them spread
Is still high holden o'er us;
The grace those sinners that subdued,
The strength those weaklings that renewed,
Doth vanquish, doth restore us.

3.The cleaving sins that brought them low
Are still our souls oppressing;
The tears that from their eyes did flow
Fall fast, our shame confessing;
As with Thee, Lord, prevailed their cry,
So our strong prayer ascends on high
And brlngeth down Thy blessing.

4.Their Joy unto their Lord we bring;
Their song to us descendeth;
The Spirit who in them did sing
To us His music lendeth;
His song in them, In us, is one;
We raise it high, we send It on,
The song that never endeth.

5.Ye saints to come, take up the strain,
The same sweet theme endeavour :
Unbroken be the golden chain;
Keep on the song for ever;
Safe In the same dear dwelling-place,
Rich with the same eternal grace,
Bless the same boundless giver.
