Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Eternal praises to my Lord

Eternal praises to my Lord

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Eternal praises to my Lord,
My soul desires to give'
My health it is again restor'd,
And I am spar'd to live.

2 My feeble body lay oppress'd,
My soul wil fill'd with frief;
I was on ev'ry side distress'd,
Whilst hopeless of relief.

3 My life approach'd the brink of death,
Just on the verge I lay:
I nearly breath'd my latest breath,
Which almost fled away.

4 But God has still prolong'd my days,
Vouchsaf'd my life to save:
And I will live unto his praise,
Whilst life and breath I have.

5 His mercies I will ne'er forget,
But thankful will I be;
The mercies of my God are great!
Which he has shown to me.

6 When all the help of man had fail'd
To ease my of my pain:
When death itself almost prevail'd,
The Lord help'd me again.

7 The wonders thou my God hast wrought,
My soul shall e'er adore;
Till I can praise thee as I ought,
And thank thee ever more.
