Sing Aloud To God Our Strength

by Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)


Set: Castlewellan 2008
Tune: Wells 8.8.8.8.

Set: Yarnfield 2016
Tune: Berry Head 7.7.7.7.8.8.


1 SING aloud to God our strength;
He has brought us hitherto:
He will bring us home at length;
This the Lord our God will do:
Doubt not, for His word is stable;
Fear not, for His arm is able.

2 Sing aloud to God our strength;
Sing with wonder of His love;
Who can tell its breadth or length,
Who below, or who above?
Who its depth and height can measure?
'Tis a rich unbounded treasure!

3 Sing aloud to God our strength;
He is with us where we go;
Fear we not the journey's length,
Fear we not the mighty foe:
All our foes shall be defeated,
And our journey safe completed.
