Representative Text

1 O praise the Lord of Heav'n,
Whose mercy never fails;
Six Troubles come, and also Sev'n,
But still his Grace prevails.

2 The Year that's almost past
His Goodness did proclaim;
His Love doth now and always last,
Give glory to his Name.

3 How Wond'rous are his Ways
Which he to us makes known!
We join to sing our Makers Praise;
And worship him alone.

4 When we the Year begun
We rais'd our chearful songs;
And surely when its Course is run
To God our Praise belongs.

5 His Mercies till are new,
Let us extol his Love
May we this Blessed Theme pursue
Till we shall meet above.
