Representative Text

1 Come, let us praise God's holy name,
And thank him for his love and grace,
Who to our help and rescue, came
And put an end to our distress.

2 How greatly were we terrified,
When we began to feel the rod;
Death threat'ned us on ev'ry side,
As the just punishments of god.

2 We were distress'd on every hand,
Involv'd in all the depth of woes;
When it appear'd, our guilty land
Should be destroy'd by cruel foes.

4 But thanks be to our gracious Lord;
Who freely will our sins forgive;
Who gave us not our just reward,
But spares us rebels, still to live.

5 God has restor'd our peace again,
O may it never more depart:
May we a greater peace obtain:
The peace of God within our heart.
