Hymn/Song Information

My soul inspired with sacred love God's holy Name

My soul, inspired with sacred love,
God's holy Name for ever bless;
Of all his favours mindful prove,
and still thy grateful thanks express.

'Tis he that all thy sins forgives,
and after sickness makes thee sound;
From danger he thy life retrieves,
By him with grace and mercy crowned.

He with good things thy mouth supplies;
thy vigour, eagle-like, renews:
He, when the guiltless sufferer cries,
his foe with just revenge pursues.

God made of old his righteous ways
to Moses and our fathers known;
His works, to his eternal praise,
were to the sons of Jacob shown.

The Lord abounds with tender love,
and unexampled acts of grace;
His wakened wrath does slowly move,
his willing mercy flows apace.

God will not always harshly chide,
but with his anger quickly part;
And loves his punishments to guide
more by his love than our desert.

As high as heaven its arch extends
above this little spot of clay,
So much his boundless love transcends
the small respects that we can pay.

As far as 'tis from east to west,
so far has he our sins removed,
Who with a father's tender breast
has such as fear him always loved.

For God, who all our frame surveys,
considers that we are but clay;
How fresh soe'er we seem, our days
like grass or flowers must fade away.

Whilst they are nipped with sudden blasts,
nor can we find their former place;
God s faithful mercy ever lasts
to those that fear him, and their race.

This shall attend on such as still
proceed in his appointed way;
And who not only know his will,
but to it just obedience pay,

The Lord, the universal King,
in heaven has fixed his lofty throne;,
To him, ye angels, praises sing,
in whose great strength his pow'r is shown

Ye that his just commands obey,
and hear and do his sacred will,
Ye hosts of his, this tribute pay,
who still what he ordains fulfil.

Let every creature jointly bless
the mighty Lord: and thou, my heart,
With grateful joy thy thanks express,
and in this concert bear thy part.
