A hymn

O then give thanks to God on high,
Who life to all is giving;
The hosts of death before Him fly,
In Him we all are living.
Then let us know no fear,
Our King is ever near;
Our stay and fortress strong,
Our strength, our hope, our song;
His kingdom is forever.

(Frederic W. Root based on the word of Martin Luther, Christian Science Hymnal, No. 10)
