XCIV. My Savior, my Almighty Friend

1 My Saviour, my Almighty Friend,
when I begin thy Praise,
Where will the growing Numbers end,
the Numbers of thy Grace?
2 Thou art my everlasting Trust,
thy Goodness I adore;
And since I knew thy Graces first,
I speak thy Glories more.

3 My Feet shall travel all the Length
of the celestial Road,
And march with Courage in thy Strength,
to see my Father-God.
4 When I am fill'd with sore Distress
For some surprizing Sin,
I'll plead thy perfect Righteousness,
and mention none but Thine.

5 How will my Lips rejoice to tell
the Vict'ries of my King!
My Soul redeem'd from sin and Hell,
shall thy Salvation sing.
6 My Tongue shall all the Day proclaim
my Saviour and my God;
His Death has brought my Foes to Shame,
and drown'd 'em in his Blood.

7 Awake, awake, my tuneful Pow'rs;
with this delightful Song
I'll entertain the darkest Hours,
nor think the Season long.
