9 Now shall my solemn vows be paid
To that Almighty Pow'r,
That heard the long requests I made
In my distressful hour.
10 My lips and cheerful heart prepare
To make his mercies known;
Come ye that fear my God, and hear
The wonders he has done.
11 When on my head huge sorrows fell,
I sought the heav’nly aid;
He sav'd my sinking soul from hell,
And death’s eternal shade.
12 If sin lay cover'd in my heart
While pray'r employ'd my tongue;
The Lord had shown me no regard,
Nor I his praises sung.
13 But God (his name be ever blest)
Has set my spirit free;
Nor turn'd from him my poor request,
Nor turn'd his heart from me.
