Hymn/Song Information

O God my heart is fully bent to magnify




O God, my heart is fully bent
to magnify thy Name;
My tongue with cheerful songs of praise
shall celebrate thy fame.


Awake, my lute, nor thou, my harp
Thy warbling notes delay
Whilst I with early hymns of joy
present the dawning day.


To all the listening tribes, O Lord,
thy wonders I will tell;
And to those nations sing thy praise,
that round about us dwell.


Because thy mercy's boundless height
the highest heaven transcends,
And far beyond th' aspiring clouds
thy faithful truth extends.


Be thou, O God, exalted high
above the starry frame;
And let the earth, with one consent,
confess thy glorious Name.


That all thy chosen people thee
their Saviour may declare:
Let thy right hand protect me still,
and answer thou my prayer.


Since God himself has said the word,
whose promise cannot fail
With joy I Shechem shall divide,
and measure Succoth's vale.


Gilead is mine, Manasseh too,
and Ephriam owns my cause:
Their strength my regal power supports,
and Judah gives my laws.


Moab I'll make my servile drunge,
on vanquished Edom tread;
And through the proud Philistine lands
my conquering banners spread.


By whose support and aid shall I
their well-fenced city gain?
Who will my troops securely lead
through Edom's guarded plain?


Lord, wilt not thou assist our arms,
which late thou didst forsake?
And wilt not thou of these our hosts
once more the guidance take?


O, to thy servants in distress
thy speedy succour send;
For vain it is on human aid
for safety to depend.


then valiant acts shall we perform,
if thou thy power disclose;
For God it is, and God alone,
that treads down all our foes.


---Alternative verses---


Thy mercy, in it's boundless height
the highest heaven transcends,
And far beyond th' aspiring clouds
thy faithful truth extends.


Be thou, O God, exalted high
above the starry frame;
And let the world, with one consent,
confess thy glorious Name.
