Strong Salvation

Enfield does this song and added a chorus. However, I couldn’t find the lyrics online. Such a great old hymn…

God is my strong salvation: What foe have I to fear?
In darkness and temptation, my light, my help is near.
Though hosts encamp around me, firm in the fight I stand.
What terror can confound me, with God at my right hand?

Place on the Lord reliance; my soul, with courage, wait.
His truth will be my sustenance, when faint and desolate.
His might my heart shall strengthen, His love my joy increase.
Mercy my days shall lengthen; the Lord will give me peace.


Words: James Mont­gom­e­ry, Songs of Zi­on, Be­ing Im­i­ta­tions of Psalms, 1822.

Music: Au­rel­ia, Sam­u­el S. Wes­ley, in a Se­lect­ion of Psalms and Hymns, by C. Kem­ble, 1864 (MIDI, NWC, PDF).
