Hymn/Song Information

Let every tongue thy goodness speak




Let every tongue thy goodness speak,
Thou sovereign Lord of all:
Thy strengthening hands uphold the weak,
And raise the poor that fall.


When sorrow bows the spirit down,
Or virtue lies distressed,
Beneath the proud oppressor's frown,
Thou giv'st the mourner rest.


The Lord supports our infant days,
And guides our giddy youth;
Holy and just are all thy ways,
And all thy words are truth.


Thou know'st the pains thy servants feel,
Thou hear'st thy children cry;
And their best wishes to fulfil,
Thy grace is ever nigh.


Thy mercy never shall remove
From men of heart sincere;
Thou sav'st the souls whose humble love
Is joined with holy fear.


[His stubborn foes his sword shall slay,
And pierce their hearts with pain
But none that serve the Lord shall say,
"They sought his aid in vain."]


My lips shall dwell upon thy praise,
And spread thy fame abroad:
Let all the sons of Adam raise
The honours of their God!


With longing eyes thy creatures wait
On thee for daily food;
Thy liberal hand provides their meat,
And fills their mouths with good.


---Alternative verses---


He knows the pains his servants feel,
He hears his children cry;
And their best wishes to fulfil,
Thy grace is ever nigh.


Let every tongue thy goodness speak,
Thou sovereign Lord of all:
Thy powerful hands uphold the weak,
And raise the poor that fall.


The Lord supports our totering days,
And guides our giddy youth;
Holy and just are all thy ways,
And all thy words are truth.
