God Is My Strong Salvation
Words: Paul Gerhardt
Music: St. Theodulph | Melchior Teschner
1. 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?

2. 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 fiece assail me, they’re calm at His command.

3. The ground of my profession is Jesus and His blood;
He gives me the possession of everlasting good.
To me His Holy Spirit speaks many-a precious word
Of rest to one who’s seeking a refuge in the Lord.
