God of Our Strength, Enthroned Above
Words: Frances Jane Crosby
Music: Vision | William Howard Doane
1. God of our strength, enthroned above,
The source of life, the fount of love;
O let devotion’s sacred flame
Our souls awake to praise Thy name.

2. To Thee we lift our joyful eyes,
To Thee on wings of faith we rise;
Come Thou, and let Thy courts on earth
Ring out Thy praise in holy mirth.

3. God of our strength, from day to day
Direct our thoughts and guide our way;
O may our hearts united be
In sweet communion, Lord, with Thee.

4. God of our strength, on Thee we call;
God of our hope, our light, our all,
Thy name we praise, Thy love adore,
Our rock, our shield, forevermore.

Refrain:
God of our strength, we wait on Thee,
Our sure defense forever be.
