Supreme in wisdom as in power,
The Rock of Ages stands;
Canst thou not search His word, and trace
The working of His hands?
He gives the conquest to the meek,
Supports the fainting heart;
And courage in the evil hour
His heavenly aids impart.
Mere human energy shall faint,
And youthful vigor cease;
But those who wait upon the Lord
In strength shall still increase.
They, with unwearied step, shall tread
The path of life divine;
With growing ardor onward move,
With growing brightness shine.
