GRATEFUL RECOLLECTIONS




Awake, our souls, and sing
The glories of the Lord;
A grateful tribute bring,
All ye who love his word:
Whilst heart and tongue with joy unite,
Let heavenly grace the song indite.


Salvation to our God,
And never-ceasing praise;
Let us his love record,
And sounds of honour raise:
‘Twas he redeemed our souls from death,
And gave them a diviner breath.


‘Tis he our strenth renews,
Our broken frame repairs,
With pity still he views
Our numerous griefs and cares:
Immortal sweets discern and crown
Our years, whilst we the blessing own.


His power our lusts subdues,
His grace our sins forgives,
Lost comforts he restores,
And drooping souls revives:
His truth endures, his promise stands,
Give him the thanks his love demands.


His honours to proclaim,
Should pardoned souls forget,
Or saints that know his name,
In thankless silence sit,
Untutored beasts would learn to praise,
And lifeless stones their voices raise.
