Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
My God, my everlasting hope,|
I live upon thy truth;
Thine hands have held my childhood up,
And strengthened all my youth.
2. My flesh was fashioned by thy power,
3. Still has my life new wonders seen|
Repeated every year;
Behold, my days that yet remain,
I trust them to thy care.
4. Cast me not off when strength declines,
5. Then in the hist'ry of my age,|
When men review my days,
They'll read thy love in every page,
In every line thy praise.
