1 All praise to His name—
All honor and fame,
Who suffered that I might be whole;
All worthy is He,
Exalted to be,
And this is the song of my soul.

Refrain:
The song of my soul,
The song of my soul,
All worthy is He
Exalted to be,
And this is the song of my soul.

2 He sought me afar,
On perilous bar,
Where wildly the billows did roll
He saved me from woe,
To Him all I owe,
And this is the song of my soul. [Refrain]

3 I’m journeying here,
From year unto year,
And heaven above is my goal;
My Lord intercedes,
Upholds me and leads,
And this is the song of my soul. [Refrain]
