1 I’ll bless and praise the Saviour’s name
My Guiding Star is He,
My Pilot through the storms of life,
Who calms the raging sea.
He is my help in deep distress,
My joy in every pain,
He knows full well my every care,
For He has felt the same.

Refrain:
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Bless and praise His holy name,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Bless and praise His holy name.

2 Oh happy, happy trysting place,
To lean on Jesus breast,
In accents sweet to hear Him say,
Come unto Me and rest.
‘Tis here my needs are all supplied,
By His abounding grace,
And here in perfect peace I rest,
Secure in His embrace. [Refrain]

3 More fair than all the sons of men,
Who on this earth have trod,
My Lord who shed His precious blood,
To bring us back to God.
Oh, laud and magnify His name,
And sing it o’er and o’er,
To Him be honor, praise and pow’r,
And glory evermore. [Refrain]
