1 With my whole heart, my God and King
Thy worthy praise I will proclaim;
Before the gods with joy I'll sing,
And ever bless thy holy name.
2 I'll worship at thy sacred seat;
And, with thy love divine inspir'd,
The praises of thy truth repeat,
Thy truth through all thy works admir'd.
3 Thou graciously inclin'st thine ear,
When I to thee address'd my cry;
And when my soul was press'd with fear,
Didst inward strength to me supply.
4 Therefore shall ev'ry earthly prince
Thy name with constant praise pursue;
Whom thy bless'd word shall them convince
That all thy works are just and true.
5 The God of heav’n maintains his state,
Frowns on the proud, and scorns the great;
But from his throne descends to bless
The humble souls that trust his grace.
6 Amidst a thousand snares I stand,
Upheld and guarded by thy hand,
Thy words my fainting soul revive,
And keep my dying faith alive.
7 Grace will complete what grace begins,
To save from sorrows or from sins;
The work that wisdom undertakes
Eternal mercy ne’er forsakes.
