O God of love and truthfulness,
Who knows no sin, perversity;
True to Thyself and righteousness,
Who can be trusted perfectly.
O God of grace, unchangeable,
Rock-like, reliable and pure;
Now what You are, dependable,
Our refuge and our God for sure.
O God who is and e’er shall be,
Who Your own self cannot deny;
Glory and power belong to Thee,
Our God on You we will rely.
(Tune: Duke St; Old Hundreth; LM)
