Lyrics

Verse 1 My soul, now praise thy maker! Let all within me bless His name Who maketh thee partaker Of mercies more than thou dar'st claim Forget Him not whose meekness Still bears with all thy sin Who healeth all thy weakness, Renews thy life within Whose grace and care are endless And saved thee through the past Who leaves no suff'rer friendless, But rights the wronged at last. Verse 2 He shows to man His treasure Of judgment, truth, and righteousness His love beyond all measure, His yearning pity o'er distress Nor treats us as we merit, But lays His anger by The humble, contrite spirit Finds His compassion nigh And high as Heav'n above us, As break from close of day So far, since He doth love us, He puts our sins away. Verse 3 For as a tender father Hath pity on his children here He in His arms will gather All who are His in childlike fear He knows how frail our powers Who but from dust are made We flourish like the flowers, And even so we fade The wind but o'er them passes, And all their bloom is o'er We wither like the grasses, Our place knows us no more. Verse 4 God's grace alone endureth, And children's children yet shall prove How He with strength assureth The hearts of all that seek His love In Heav'n is fixed His dwelling, His rule is over all Angels, in might excelling, Bright hosts, before Him fall Praise Him who ever reigneth, All ye who hear His Word Nor our poor hymns disdaineth, My soul, O praise the Lord!...
