All my hope on God is founded

All my hope on God is founded,
all my trust he shall renew;
he, my guide through changing order,
only good and only true:
God unknown,
he alone,
calls my heart to be his own.

2. Human pride and earthly glory,
sword and crown betray his trust;
what with care and toil we fashion,
tower and temple, fall to dust;
but God’s power
hour by hour
is my temple and my tower.

3. God’s great goodness lasts for ever,
deep his wisdom, passing thought;
splendour, light and life attend him,
beauty springing out of nought;
evermore
from his store
countless stars rise and adore.

4. Day by day the almighty Giver
grants to us his gifts of love;
in his will our souls find pleasure,
leading to our home above:
love shall stand
at his hand,
joy shall wait on his command.

5. Still from man to God eternal
sacrifice of praise be done;
high above all praises praising
for the gift of Christ his Son:
hear Christ’s call,
one and all-
those who follow shall not fall.
