Hymn/Song Information

According to thy promised grace thy




According to thy promised grace,
thy favor, Lord, extend:
Make good to me the word, on which
thy servant's hopes depend.


That only comfort in distress
did all my griefs control;
Thy word, when troubles hemmed me round,
revived my fainting soul.


Insulting foes did proudly mock,
and all my hopes deride;
Yet from thy law not all their scoffs
could make me turn aside.


Thy judgments then of ancient date
I quickly called to mind,
Till, ravished with such thoughts, my soul
did speedy comfort find.


Sometimes I stand amazed like one
with deadly horror struck,
To think how all my sinful foes
have thy just laws forsook.


But I thy statutes and decrees
my cheerful anthems made;
Whilst through strange lands and desert wilds
I like a pilgrim strayed.


Thy Name, that cheered my heart by day,
has filled my thoughts by night;
I then resolved by thy just laws
to guide my steps aright.


That peace of mind, which has my soul
in deep distress sustained,
By strict obedience to thy will
I happily obtained.
