Not for ourselves
Not for ourselves, O Lord, not for ourselves,
would we claim glory, but for you alone,
because of your great love and faithfulness,
the steadfast care that makes your presence known.
2 The worldly say of us, ‘Where is your God?’
They vainly look for what they idolise,
for flaunted wealth, for burnished images,
and trim all gods to their own shape and size.
3 But we will trust in God, our help and shield,
transcendent Life on whom all lives depend,
whose untold mercies give our spirits voice
to bless the Lord in songs that never end.
