Description

SATB with organ. Text by Paul Gerhardt. An affirming, resolute and joyful anthem. Also available for two-part mixed choir.

God is my strong salvation; no enemy I fear;
He hears my supplication, dispelling all my care;
If he, my head and master, defend me from above,
What pain or what disaster can part me from his love?

I fully am persuaded, and joyfully declare,
I'm never left unaided, my Father hears my prayer.
His comforts never fail me, He stands at my right hand;
When tempests fierce assail me, they're calm at his command.

The ground of my profession is Jesus and his blood.
He giveth me possession of everlasting good.
To me his spirit speaketh many a precious word
Of rest to him who seeketh a refuge in the Lord.

My merry heart is springing, it can no more be sad;
With laughter and with singing, in God's own sunshine glad.
For Christ is now preparing his City new and bright;
Where saints his throne are sharing, and faith is turned to sight.
