I will bless the Lord at all times

Full Text

1 I will bless the Lord at all times
For his goodness unto me,
For the joys of his salvation,
For his love so full and free.

Refrain:
I will bless the Lord, bless the Lord,
Bless the Lord at all times,
And praise him, praise him,
Praise him o’er and o’er,
I will bless the Lord, bless the Lord,
Bless the Lord at all times,
Till I strike my harp in Zion
With his saints forevermore.

2 I will bless the Lord, my Father,
For his kindness day by day,
For his loving arms around me,
For his sunshine on my way. [Refrain]

3 I will bless the Lord, my Saviour,
For he died to ransom me,
That he lives and reigns forever,
And his glory I shall see. [Refrain]

4 I will bless the Holy Spirit,
That my soul is sanctified,
For his promise and his presence,
Ev’ry day my loving guide. [Refrain]

Owens, Priscilla Jane, was born July 21, 1829, of Scotch and Welsh descent, and is now (1906) resident at Baltimore, where she is engaged in public-school work. For 50 years Miss Owen has interested herself in Sunday-school work, and most of her hymns were written for children's services. Her hymn in the Scotch Church Hymnary, 1898, "We have heard a joyful sound" (Missions), was written for a Sunday-school Mission Anniversary, and the words were adapted to the chorus "Vive le Roi" in the opera The Huguenots.
