Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Lord, thou my God, I'll thee extoll

Lord, thou my God, I'll thee extoll

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 LORD, Thou my God! I'll Thee extol,
I will thy name confess;
Who wonders dost, thy counsels old
are truth and faithfulness.
2 For Thou a city mad'st an heap;
its wall in ruin lies;
The strangers palace hast eras'd;
nor ever shall it rise.

3 Therefore the mighty people shall
great glory to Thee bear;
The city of the terrible
of nations shall Thee fear.
4 Because Thou to the poor hast been
their strength, as they confess;
A happy strength to helpless ones,
in times of their distress.

Thou art a refuge from the storm,
a shadow from the heat;
When blasts of dreadful ones like storms
on walls in fury beat;
And like fierce heat in places dry;
5 but Thou shalt quell their noise,
And, as the heat by shady cloud,
suppress their dreadful voice.

6 The LORD of hosts moreover will
upon this mountain make
A sumptuous feast of fat things for
all people to partake:
A feast of wines presev'd on lees,
for them He will prepare;
Of fat and marrow-things, of wines
that most refined are.

7 And in this mountain He destroy
the face of cov'ring shall,
Cast o'er all people, and the vail
spread over nations all.
8 For evre He will swallow up
death into victory.
The Lord JEHOVAH tears shall wipe
from ev'ry face and eye.

His people's whole reproach from all
the earth He'll take away.
9 Lo this our God! who will us save;
for Him we waiting stay!
This is the LORD on whom we have
our expectation had;
In his salvation we'll rejoice,
and be exceeding glad.
