Thy righteous acts and saving health my

Thy righteous acts and saving health
my mouth shall still declare:
Unable yet to count them all,
though summed with utmost care,

While God vouchsafes me his support,
I'll in his strength go on;
All other righteousness disclaim;
and mention his alone.

Thou, Lord, hast taught me from my youth
to praise thy glorious Name;
And ever since thy wondrous works
have been my constant theme.

Then now forsake me not when I
am gray and feeble grown,
Till I to these, and future times,
thy strength and pow'r have shown.

How high thy justice soars, O God !
how great and wondrous are
The mighty works which thou hast done!
who may with thee compare?

Me, whom thy hand has sorely pressed,
thy grace shall yet relieve,
And from the lowest depth of woe
with tender care retrieve.

Through thee, my time to come shall be
with pow'r and greatness crowned;
And me, who dismal years have passed,
thy comforts shall surround.

Therefore with psaltery and harp
thy truth, O Lord, I'll praise;
To thee, the God of Jacob's race,
my voice in anthems raise.

Then joy shall fill my mouth, and songs
employ my cheerful voice;
My grateful soul, by thee redeemed,
shall in thy strength rejoice.

My tongue thy just and righteous acts
shall all the day proclaim;
Because thou didst confound my foes,
and brought'st them all to shame.
