Refrain:
“Sing unto the Lord,
O ye saints of His, sing, sing,
Sing unto the Lord,
And at the remembrance of His holiness,
O give thanks unto the Lord.”

1 O Lord, Thy loving kindness
Doth compass all our ways,
And “Thy compassions fail not,”
Through all the passing days;
To Thee, O great Jehovah,
In “time of need” we cry;
And all who call upon Thee
Shall find Thee ever nigh. [Refrain]

2 Thy goodness we remember,
We praise Thy holiness,
We look to Thee, O Saviour,
To save, and heal, and bless;
‘Tis by Thy loving favor
Thy trusting children stand,
Upheld, and kept, and guided,
By Thy protecting hand. [Refrain]

3 Let saints recount His mercies,
And fill His courts with praise;
Let all who know His goodness,
Their hallelujahs raise;
Praise God, the loving Father,
And Jesus Christ His Son,
With God the Holy Spirit,
The glorious Three in One. [Refrain]
