Hymn/Song Information

Although I say thou suffer men on us to

Although, I say, thou suffer men
on us to ride and reign;
Though we through fire and water run
with very grief and pain;

Yet sure thou dost of thy good grace
dispose it to the best,
Bringing us out into a place
to live in wealth and rest.

Unto thy house resort will I
to offer and to pray;
And there I will myself apply
my vows to thee to pay:

The vows that with my mouth I spake
in all my grief and smart,
The vows, I say, which I did make
in anguish of my heart.

Burnt off'rings I will give to thee
of oxen fat, and rams,
Yea, this my sacrifice shall be
Of bullocks, goats, and lambs.

Come forth and hearken here full soon,
all ye that fear the Lord;
What he for my poor soul hath done
to you I will record.

Full oft I call to mind his grace,
his mouth to him doth cry;
And thou, my tongue, make speedy pace
to praise him joyfully.

But if I feel my heart within
in wicked works rejoice,
Or if I have delight in sin,
God will not hear my voice.

But surely God my voice hath heard,
and what I do require;
My prayer also he doth regard,
and granteth my desire.

All praise to him that hath not put
nor cast me out of mind,
Nor yet his mercy from me shut,
which I do ever find.
