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 distressed
from my example comfort take,
and charm their griefs to rest.
3 O magnify the Lord with me,
with me exalt his name;
when in distress to him I called,
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 O make but trial of his love;
experience will decide
how blest they are, 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.
