637. What Shall I Render to My God

1 What shall I render to my God
for all his kindness shown?
my feet shall visit thine abode,
my songs address thy throne.

2 How much is mercy thy delight,
thou ever-blessed God!
How dear thy servants in thy sight!
How precious is their blood!

3 How happy all thy servants are!
How great thy grace to me!
My life, which thou hast made thy care,
Lord, I devote to thee.

4 Now I am thine, forever thine,
nor shall my purpose move;
thy hand hath loosed my bonds of pain,
and bound me with thy love.

5 Here in thy courts I leave my vow,
and thy rich grace record;
witness, ye saints who hear me now,
if I forsake the Lord.
