Hymn: TLH 292, st. 5,6,8: Lord Jesus Christ, With Us Abide

Hymnary.org Organ Audio



5. O God, how sin’s dread works abound! 
Throughout the earth no rest is found, 
And falsehood’s spirit wide has spread, 
And error boldly rears its head. 

6. The haughty spirits, Lord, restrain 
Who o’er Thy Church with might would reign 
And always set forth something new, 
Devised to change Thy doctrine true. 

8. A trusty weapon is Thy Word, 
Thy Church’s buckler, shield and sword. 
Oh, let us in its power confide 
That we may seek no other guide!
