Hymn/Song Information

PRAISE FOR GOD'S GOODNESS




To celebrate thy praise, O Lord,
I will my heart prepare;
To all the listening world thy works,
thy wondrous works, declare.


The thought of them shall to my soul
exalted pleasure bring;
Whilst to thy Name, O thou most High,
triumphant praise I sing.


Thou mad'st my haughty foes to turn
their backs in shameful flight;
Struck with thy presence, down they fell,
they perished at thy sight.


Against insulting foes advanced,
thou didst my cause maintain;
My right asserting from thy throne,
where truth and justice reign.


The insolence of heathen pride
thou hast reduced to shame;
Their wicked offspring quite destroyed,
and blotted out their name.


Mistaken foes! your haughty threats
are to a period come;
Our city stands, which you designed
to make our common tomb.


The Lord for ever lives, who has
his righteous throne prepared,
Impartial justice to dispense;
to punish or reward.


God is a constant sure defense
against oppressing rage;
As troubles rise, his needful aids
in our behalf engage.


All those who have his goodness proved
will in his truth confide;
Whose mercy ne'er forsook the man
that on his help relied.


His suff’ring saints, when most distress’d,
He ne’er forgets to aid;
Their expectation shall be crown’d,
Thou for a time delay’d.


Sing praises, therefore, to the Lord,
from Zion, his abode;
Proclaim his deeds, till all the world
confess no other God.


To celebrate thy praise, O Lord,
I will my heart prepare;
To all the listening world thy works,
thy wondrous works, declare.


---Alternative verses---


The thought of them shall to my soul
exalted pleasure bring;
While to thy Name, O thou most High,
triumphant praise I sing.


Thou art, O Lord, a sure defense
against oppressing rage;
As troubles rise, his needful aid
in our behalf engage.
