Lord to thee, each Night, and Day,
Lord to thee, each night, and day,
Strong in Hope, we ſing, and pray:
Strong in hope, we sing, and pray:
Tho’ convulſive rocks the Ground,
Though convulsive rocks the ground,
And thy Thunders roll around;
And thy thunders roll around;
Still to thee, each Night and Day,
Still to thee, each night and day,
Strong in Hope, we ſing, and pray.
Strong in hope, we sing, and pray.
