Hymn/Song Information

HIS LOVING KINDNESS




Awake, my soul, to joyful lays
And sing Thy great Redeemer's praise.
He justly claims a song from me,
His loving-kindness, oh, how free!


He saw me ruined in the Fall,
Yet loved me notwithstanding all.
He saved me from my lost estate,
His loving-kindness, oh, how great!


When I was Satan's easy prey
And deep in debt and bondage lay,
He paid His life for my discharge,
His loving-kindness, oh, how large.


Through mighty hosts of cruel foes,
Where earth and hell my way oppose,
He safely leads my soul along,
His loving-kindness, oh, how strong!


When trouble, like a gloomy cloud,
Has gathered thick and thundered loud,
He near my soul has always stood,
His loving-kindness, oh, how near!


When earthly friends forsake me quite
And I have neither skill now might,
He's sure my Helper to appear,
His loving-kindness, oh, near!


Too oft I feel my sinful heart
Prone from my Jesus to depart;
But through I have Him oft forgot,
His loving-kindness changes not.


When I shall pass death's gloomy vale
And all my mortal power must fail,
Oh, may my last, expiring breath
His loving-kindness sing in death!


Then shall I mount and soar away
To the bright world of endless day
And sing with rapture and surprise
His loving-kindness in the skies.


And now earth's rightful King has come,
To take his ransomed people home;
I'll sing upon that blissful shore:
His loving-kindness evermore.


---Alternative verses---


Though numerous hosts of mighty foes,
Though earth and hell my way oppose,
He safely leads my soul along -
His loving-kindness, O how strong!


Then let me mount and soar away
To the bright world of endless day;
And sing with raptures and surprise,
His loving-kindness in the skies.


Soon I shall pass the gloomy vale
And all my mortal powers must fail,
Oh, may my last, expiring breath
His loving-kindness sing in death!


Then shall me mount and soar away
To the bright world of endless day
And sing with rapture and surprise
His loving-kindness in the skies.
