Lord, I would praise thee

Representative Text

1 Lord, I would praise Thee for Thy great salvation;
My soul is filled with happy exultation,
Its chief enjoyment, to proclaim the story
Of Thy great glory.

2 Lord, I would serve Thee in complete surrender;
And to Thy great cause my best efforts ender;
Give me a spirit, Thy control possessing,
Serving and blessing.

3 Lord, I would love Thee, Thou art love deserving,
For Thou dost keep me with a grace preserving;
Fill Thou my cold heart with devotion burning
And for Thee yearning.

4 Lord, I would trust Thee in my dying hour;
Have Thee enfold me by Thy love and power;
I shall not fear then to go forward bravely,
For Thou wilt save me.
