Full Text

1 The Lord is ever gracious,
To those who do His will;
His goodness and His mercy
Their steps will follow still.

Then praise His name forever,
His wondrous love proclaim;
Let all the people praise Him,
And magnify His name.

2 He sends His benedictions
With each returning day;
He gives us joy and gladness,
And takes our sins away. [Refrain]

3 Our cup is filled with blessings,
And overflows with love;
He draws us by His spirit
To yon bright home above. [Refrain]
