Now shall my solemn vows be paid To that Almighty




Now shall my solemn vows be paid
To that Almighty Power,
That heard the long requests I made
In my distressful hour.


My lips and cheerful heart prepare
To make his mercies known;
Come, ye that fear my God, and hear
The wonders he has done.


When on my head huge sorrows fell,
I sought his heavenly aid;
He saved my sinking soul from hell,
And death's eternal shade.


If sin lay covered in my heart,
While prayer employed my tongue,
The Lord had shown me no regard,
Nor I his praises sung.


But God (his name be ever blest)
Has set my spirit free;
Nor turned from him my poor request,
Nor turned his heart from me.

Now shall my solemn vows be paid
To that almighty Power
Who heard the long request I made
In my distressful hour.


My lips and cheerful heart prepare
To make his mercies known:
Come, ye who fear my God, and hear
The wonders he has done.


But God-his name be ever blest!-
Has set my spirit free;
He ne'er rejected my request,
Nor turned his heart from me.
