Let me but hear my Saviour say - Christ our Strength
(Isaac Watts/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Christ our Strength.

1. Let me but hear my Saviour say,
  "Strength shall be equal to thy day,"
then I rejoice in deep distress,
  leaning on all-sufficient grace.

2. I glory in infirmity,
  that Christ's own power may rest on me:
when I am weak, then am I strong,
  grace is my shield, and Christ my song.

3. I can do all things, or can bear
  all sufferings, if my Lord be there;
sweet pleasures mingle with the pains,
  while his left hand my head sustains.

4. But if the Lord be once withdrawn,
  and we attempt the work alone;
when new temptations spring and rise,
  we find how great our weakness is.

Isaac Watts, Hymns and Spiritual Songs, Book 1, Hymn 15 (without 5th stanza).
