Full Text

1. For Thou o’er all Thy name, O Lord,
Hath magnified Thy faithful word;
Thou didst me answer when I cried,
Thou hast my soul with strength supplied.

With all my heart I’ll praise Thy name,
Before Thee, God, Thy praise proclaim;
I’ll worship in Thy holy place
And praise Thee for Thy truth and grace.

2. All kings of earth shall give Thee praise,
When from Thy mouth they learn Thy ways;
They in Jehovah’s ways shall sing,
For great in glory is our king. [Refrain]

3. The Lord, though high, respects the low,
But He the proud doth far off know;
Though waves of trouble round me roll,
Thou, Lord, will yet revive my soul. [Refrain]

4. O Lord, Thy mercy never ends,
Throughout all ages it extends;
Then on Thy servant pity take,
Thy own hands’ work do not forsake. [Refrain]
