1 With all my heart I'll Thee confess,
to Thee my thanks will bring,
And openly before the GODS,
I'll praises to Thee sing.
2 Towards thy house of holiness
I'll bow and worship Thee;
And thy great name to celebrate,
shall my employment be.
But chiefly for thy love and truth
thy praises I'll proclaim;
For over all, Thou, by thy word,
hast magnify'd thy name.
3 The very day I cry'd to Thee,
Thou kindly didst reply;
And Thou didst fortify my soul
with strength in full supply.
4 All kings throughout the joyful earth,
shall give Thee praise, O LORD,
When of thy mouth they come to hear
the true and faithful word.
5 Yea, they with raised joy shall sing
along JEHOVAH"s ways;
For great the glory of the LORD,
and great is all his praise.
6 The LORD, tho' high, yet kindly looks
on those who lowly are;
But those exalted high with pride,
he knows and keeps afar.
7 Although I walk amidst distress,
Thee quick'ning me I have:
Thine hand shall smite my raging foes,
and thy right hand me save.
8 The LORD will perfect what I want:
thy mercy ever stands;
JEHOVAH, O forsake thou not
the works of thine own hands.
