Representative Text

1 O Lord, I will praise thee,
For though thou wast angry,
thine anger is turned away!
by grace now is pardoned
this heart that was hardened;
From sin I am ransomed today.

Hosanna! hosanna!
The Lord is my banner,
His anger is turned away!
My chains have been riven,
My sins all forgiven;
O Lord, I will praise thee today.

2 O Lord, I will praise thee,
Because thou hast saved me,
And welcomed thy prodigal home;
thy great love abiding
Hath healed my back sliding;
From thee I will never more roam. [Chorus]

3 O Lord, I will praise thee,
For great is thy mercy,
To pardon transgressions like mine;
Tho' summer had ended,
Thine angels defended,
And kept this late trophy of thine. [Chorus]

4 O Lord, I will praise thee,
For though thou wast angry,
Thine anger is turned away!
Thy comforts now cheer me,
Thy presence is near me,
Thou lovest me freely today! [Chorus]
