Hymn/Song Information

To God your grateful voices raise who




To God your grateful voices raise,
who does your daily patron prove;
And let your never-ceasing praise
attend on his eternal love.


Let those give thanks whom he from bands
of proud oppressing foes released;
And brought them back from distant lands,
from north and south, and west and east.


Through lonely desert ways they went,
nor could a peopled city find;
Till, quite with thirst and hunger spent,
their fainting soul within them pined.


Then soon to God's indulgent ear
did they their mournful cry address;
Who graciously vouchsafed to hear,
and freed them from their deep distress.


From crooked paths he led them forth,
and in the certain way did guide
To wealthy towns of great resort,
where all their wants were well supplied.


O then that all the earth with me
would God for this his goodness praise,
And for the mighty works which he
throughout the wond'ring world displays!


For he from heav'n the sad estate
of longing souls with pity views;
To hungry souls that pant for meat,
his goodness daily food renews.
