Look Inside

A 16th-century text and tune serve as the basis for this setting by Benjamin M. Culli. Stanzas one and three are set in a light, Baroque-style trio for unison voices, C Instrument, and organ, harpsichord, or piano, while stanza two features SATB choir singing a harmonization by J. S. Bach. This hymn of comfort and trust may be familiar in a different translation ("Who Trusts in God a Strong Abode"), which is the Hymn of the Day for Trinity 23.

A delightful accompaniment . . . a dignified Baroque-style setting for this profound theological text.

Who puts his trust
In God most just
Hath built his house securely,
Hath built his house securely;
He who relies
On Jesus Christ
Shall reach His heav'n most surely,
Shall reach His heav'n most surely.
Then fixed on Thee
My trust shall be,
For Thy truth cannot alter;
While mine Thou art,
Not death's worst smart
Shall make my courage falter,
Shall make my courage falter.

Though fiercest foes
My course oppose,
A dauntless front I'll show them,
A dauntless front I'll show them:
My champion Thou,
Lord Christ, art now,
Who soon shalt overthrow them,
Who soon shalt overthrow them!
And if but Thee
I have in me
With Thy good gifts and Spirit,
Nor death nor hell,
I know full well,
Shall hurt me, through Thy merit,
Shall hurt me, through Thy merit.

I rest me here
Without a fear;
By Thee shall all be given,
By Thee shall all be given.
My Friend indeed
Grants all I need
For this life or for heaven,
For this life or for heaven.
O keep me true,
My heart renew,
My soul and flesh deliver!
Lord, hear my prayer,
And in Thy care
Keep me in peace forever,
Keep me in peace forever.
