LOVING KINDNESS




Awake, my soul, in joyful lays,
And sing thy great Redeemer's praise:
He justly claims a song from me,
His loving-kindness is so free.


He saw me ruined in the fall,
Yet loved me not withstanding all,
And saved me from my lost estate,
His loving-kindness is so great.


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


When trouble, like a gloomy cloud,
Has gathered thick and thundered loud,
He near my soul has ever stood;
His loving-kindeness, O so good!


Often I feel my sinful heart
Prone from my Jesus to depart;
But though I have him oft forgot,
His loving-kindness changes not.


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


So when I pass death's gloomy vale,
And life and mortal pow'rs shall fail,
O 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;
There shall I sing, with sweet surprise,
His loving-kindness in the skies.


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


---Alternative verses---



Awake, my soul, in joyful lays,
And sing thy great Redeemer's praise:
He justly claims a song from thee,
His loving-kindness is so free.


Soon shall I pass the gloomy valeó
Soon all my mortal powers must fail;
O may my last expiring breath
His loving-kindness sing in death!


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


Soon shall we mount, and soar away
To the bright realms of endless day;
And sing, with rapture and surprise,
His loving-kindness in the skies.
