1. I will bless the Lord forevermore,
Joyfully sing praises to his name;
I will tell the wonders of his love,
And his goodness all abroad proclaim.
For he brought me up out of an horrible pit,
The pit of miry clay,
And he set my feet upon a rock, the solid rock,
And established my goings in the heav'nly way.
2. How my soul doth magnify the Lord,
Who inclined his ear and heard my cry,
Put a glad, new song into my mouth,
Even praise to him who rules on high. [Chorus]
3. From the depths of human sin and woe,
Where no arm of flesh could reach and save,
He hath lifted me to heights above,
Where no more can sin my soul enslave. [Chorus]
4. O how peaceful now the life I live,
O how sweet the song he gave to me,
And how pleasant is the way he leads.
Glory to his name forever be! [Chorus]
