We come unto our fathers' God

1) We come unto our Father's 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 fire 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 now our prayer ascends on high
And bringeth 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
