Hymn/Song Information

GOD OUR DELIVERER




Through all the changing scenes of life,
In trouble and in joy,
The praises of my God shall still
My heart and tongue employ.


Of His deliverance I will boast,
Till all that are distressed
From my example courage take
And soothe their griefs to rest.


O magnify the Lord with me,
With me exalt His Name;
When in distress to Him I called,
He to my rescue came.


Their drooping hearts were soon refreshed,
Who looked to Him for aid;
Desired success in every face,
A cheerful air displayed.


“Behold,” they say, “Behold the man
Whom providence relieved;
The man so dangerously beset,
So wondrously retrieved!”


The hosts of God encamp around
The dwellings of the just;
Deliverance He affords to all
Who on His succour trust.


O make but trial of His love;
Experience will decide
How blest are they, and only they,
Who in His truth confide.


Fear Him, ye saints, and you will then
Have nothing else to fear;
Make you His service your delight;
Your wants shall be His care.


While hungry lions lack their prey,
The Lord will food provide
For such as put their trust in Him,
And see their needs supplied.


For God preserves
the souls of those
who on his truth depend;
to them and their posterity
his blessing shall descend.


Fear him, ye saints,
and you will then
Have nothing else to fear;
Make you his service your delight,
He'll make your wants his care.


To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God whom we adore,
be glory, as it was, is now,
And shall be evermore.


---Alternative verses---


Come magnify the Lord with me,
With me exalt His Name;
When in distress to Him I called,
He to my rescue came.


Of His deliverance I will boast,
Till all that are distressed
From my example comfort take
And charm their griefs to rest.


Fear Him, ye saints, and you will then
Have nothing else to fear;
Make you His service your delight;
He'll make your wants His care.


The angel of the Lord encamps
Around the good and just;
Deliverance He affords to all
Who on His succor trust.
