"We rest on thee, and in
thy name we go."

righteousness, our sure foundation,
Our Prince of glory and our King of love.

And needing more each day
Thy grace to know:
Yet from our hearts a song of triumph pealing,

When passing through the gates of pearly splendor,

And Asa cried unto the LORD his God,
and said, LORD, it is nothing with
thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us,
O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this
multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee.
