For the Strength of the Hills

 


Lyrics

  1. 1. For the strength of the hills we bless thee,

    Our God, our fathers’ God;

    Thou hast made thy children mighty

    By the touch of the mountain sod.

    Thou hast led thy chosen Israel

    To freedom’s last abode;

  2. [Chorus]

    For the strength of the hills we bless thee,

    Our God, our fathers’ God.

  3. 2. At the hands of foul oppressors

    We’ve borne and suffered long;

    Thou hast been our help in weakness,

    And thy pow’r hath made us strong.

    Amid ruthless foes outnumbered

    In weariness we trod;

  4. 3. Thou hast led us here in safety

    Where the mountain bulwark stands

    As the guardian of the loved ones

    Thou hast brought from many lands.

    For the rock and for the river,

    The valley’s fertile sod,

  5. 4. We are watchers of a beacon

    Whose light must never die;

    We are guardians of an altar

    ’Midst the silence of the sky.

    Here the rocks yield founts of courage,

    Struck forth as by thy rod;
