A city strong we claim as ours,
salvation seen in walls and towers.
Fling wide the gates! the way prepare
for faithful hearts to enter there.
Our hearts and minds on God be stayed
in perfect peace, and undismayed;
we look to him whose will is best
and in the Rock of Ages rest.
His righteous rule is still the same
and all our hopes are in his Name:
he guides our steps, his word we trust,
and walk with him whose ways are just.
To God the Father praise belongs,
to God the Son we lift our songs:
with God the Spirit, One in Three,
to God shall endless glory be!
