What God is like to him I serve[1],

What Savior like to mine?

O, never let me from thee swerve,

For I am truly thine.

 

My thankful mouth shall speak they praise,

My tongue shall talk of thee[2]:

On high my heart, O, do I raise,

For what thou’st done for me.

 

Go, worldlings[3], to your vanities,

And heathen to your gods;

Let them help in adversities[4],

And sanctify their rods.

 

My God is not like to yours[5],

Yourselves shall judges be;

I find his love, I know his power

A succorer of me.

 

He is not a man that he should lie[6],

No son of man to unsay;

His word he plighted[7] hath on high

And I shall live for aye[8].

 

And for his sake that faithful is,

That died but now doth live[9],

The first and last, that lives for aye[10],

Me lasting life shall give[11].
