116B. What Shall I Render to the LORD

1 What shall I render to the LORD
for all his benefits to me?
How shall my life, by grace restored,
give worthy thanks, O LORD, to thee?

2 Salvation's cup of blessing now
I take and call upon God's name.
Before his saints I pay my vow
and here my gratitude proclaim.

3 His saints the LORD delights to save;
their death is precious in his sight.
He has redeemed me from the grave,
and in his service I delight.

4 With thankful heart I offer now
my gift and call upon God's name.
Before his saints I pay my vow
and here my gratitude proclaim.

5 Within his house, the house of prayer,
I dedicate myself to God.
Let all his saints his grace declare
and join to sound his praise abroad.
