138A. With Grateful Heart My Thanks I Bring

1 With grateful heart my thanks I bring;
before the "gods" your praise I sing.
I worship in your holy place
and praise you for your truth and grace;
for truth and grace together shine
in your most holy Word divine,
in your most holy Word divine.

2 I cried to you, and you did save;
your word of grace new courage gave.
The kings of earth shall thank you, LORD,
for they have heard your wondrous word;
yes, they shall come with songs of praise,
for great and glorious are your ways,
for great and glorious are your ways.

3 O LORD, enthroned in glory bright,
you reign alone in heavenly height;
the proud in vain your favor seek,
but you have mercy for the meek.
Through trouble though my pathway be,
you will revive and strengthen me,
you will revive and strengthen me.

4 You will stretch forth your mighty arm
to save me when my foes alarm.
The work you have for me begun
shall by your grace be fully done.
Your love forever will endure:
your mercy, LORD, is ever sure;
your mercy, LORD, is ever sure.
