Hymn/Song Information

O render thanks and bless the Lord invoke his




O render thanks, and bless the Lord;
invoke his sacred Name;
Acquaint the nations with his deeds,
his matchless deeds proclaim.


Sing to his praise, in lofty hymns
his wondrous works rehearse;
Make them the theme of your discourse,
and subject of your verse.


Rejoice in his Almighty Name,
alone to be adored;
And let their heart o'erflow with joy
that humbly seek the Lord.


Seek ye the Lord, his saving strength
devoutly still implore;
And, where he's ever present, seek
his face for evermore.


The wonders that his hands have wrought
keep thankfully in mind;
The righteous statutes of his mouth,
and laws to us assigned.


Know ye, his servant Abr'am's seed,
and Jacob's chosen race;
He's still our God, his judgments still
throughout the earth take place.


His cov'nant he hath kept in mind
for num'rous ages past;
Which yet for thousand ages more
in equal force shall last.


First signed to Abr'am, next by oath
to Isaac made secure;
To Jacob and his heirs a law
for ever to endure.


That Canaan's land should be their lot,
when yet but few they were;
But few in number, and those few
all friendless strangers there.


In pilgrimage from realm to realm
securely they removed;
Whilst proudest monarchs for their sakes
severely he reproved.


"These mine anointed are, (Said he,)
let none my servants wrong;"
"Nor treat the poorest prophet ill,
that does to me belong."


A dearth at last, by his command,
did through the land prevail;
Till corn, the chief support of life,
sustaining corn did fail.


But his indulgent providence
had pious Joseph sent,
Sold into Egypt, but their death
who sold him to prevent.


His feet with heavy chains were crushed,
with calumny his fame;
Till God's appointed time and word
to his deliv'rance came.


The king his sov'reign orders sent,
and rescued him with speed;
Whom private malice had confined,
the people's ruler freed.


His court, revenues, realm, were all
subjected to his will;
His greatest princes to control,
and teach his statesmen skill,
