29. Through All the Changing Scenes of Life

1 Through all the changing scenes of life,
In trouble and in joy,
The praises of my God shall still
My heart and tongue employ.

2 Of His deliv'rance I will boast
Till all that are distrest
From my example comfort take
And charm their griefs to rest.

3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
With me exalt His name!
When in distress to Him I cried,
He to my rescue came.

4 The hosts of God encamp around
The dwellings of the just;
Deliv'rance He affords to all
Who on His succor trust.

5 Oh, make but trial of His love!
Experience will decide
How blest are they, and only they,
Who in His truth confide.

6 Fear Him, ye saints, and you will then
Have nothing else to fear:
Make you His service your delight,
He'll make your wants His care.

Amen.
