With my whole heart, my sacrifice

With my whole heart, my sacrifice

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

1. With my whole heart, my sacrifice
Of praise, to thee, I'll bring;
And openly, before the gods,
Thy praise, my God, I'll sing.
2. Towards thy holy house I'll bow,
Thy grace, and truth, proclaim;
For over all, thou by thy word,
Hast magnified thy name.

3. God, in the day I made my cry,
A speedy answer gave;
Did strength increase through all my soul,
And from my tears me save.
4. Lord, thee, all kings on earth, shall praise;
When they shall hear thy word.
5. They, in Jehovah's ways, shall sing;
For great's thy glory, Lord.

6. For though the Lord's enthroned on high,
The humble he respects;
But he far off beholds the proud,
And with disdain rejects.
7. Though circled with distress, I walk,
Thee quickening me I have
Thou'lt stretch thy hand on my foe's wrath
Thy right hand will me save.

8. What mercy has for me begun,
The Lord will perfect make;
Thy mercy fails not, Lord; the work
Of thy hands ne'er forsake.
