All My Hope on God Is Founded Lyrics
Translator: Robert Bridges; Author: Joachim Neander
All my hope on God is founded
who does still my trust renew;
through all change and chance God guides me,
only good and only true.
Love unknown, God’s alone,
calls my heart to be God’s own.
Human pride and earthly glory,
sword and crown, betray all trust;
what our care and toil establish,
tower and temple, fall to dust,
but God’s power, hour by hour,
is my temple and my tower.
God’s great goodness reigns eternal,
deep in wisdom, passing thought;
light and life are all God’s splendour
bringing beauty out of naught.
Evermore from God’s store
newborn worlds rise and adore.
Daily does Almighty Giver
bounteous gifts on us bestow,
God’s desire our soul delighting,
pleasure leading where we go.
Love will stand at God’s hand;
joy will wait on God’s command.
Still from earth to God eternal
sacrifice of praise be done,
high above all praises praising
for the gift of Christ, the Son.
Hear Christ call one and all:
you that follow shall not fall.
Alternative Version of All My Hope Is Founded
All my hope on God is founded;
He doth still my trust renew.
Me through change and chance He guideth,
Only good and only true.
God unknown, He alone
Calls my heart to be His own.
Pride of man and earthly glory,
Sword and crown betray his trust;
What with care and toil he buildeth,
Tower and temple fall to dust.
But God’s power, hour by hour,
Is my temple and my tower.
God’s great goodness aye endureth,
Deep His wisdom, passing thought;
Splendor, light and life attend Him,
Beauty springeth out of naught.
Love doth stand at His hand;
Joy doth wait on His command.
Still from man to God eternal,
Sacrifice of praise be done.
High above all praises praising,
For the gift of Christ His son.
Christ doth call one and all:
Ye who follow shall not fall.
