LXXV. Safety in God

1 Arise, my soul, my joyful pow'rs,
And triumph in my God;
Awake, my voice, and loud proclaim
His glorious grace abroad.

2 He rais'd me from the deeps of sin,
The gates of gaping hell,
And fix'd my standing more secure,
Than 'twas before I fell.

3 The arms of everlasting love,
Beneath my soul he plac'd,
And on the rock of ages set
My slipp'ry footsteps fast.

4 The city of my bless'd abode
Is wail'd around with grace;
Salvation for a bulwark stands
To shield the sacred place.

4 Satan may vent his sharpest spite,
And all his legions roar;
Almighty mercy guards my life,
And bounds his raging pow'r.

5 Arise, my soul; awake, my voice,
And tunes of pleasure sing;
Loud hallelujahs shall address
My Savior and my King.
