1 THROUGH all the changing scenes of life,
In trouble and in joy,
The praises of my God shall still
My heart and tongue employ.
2 Of his deliverance I will boast,
Till all that are distressed
From my example comfort take,
And charm their griefs to rest.
3 O magnify the Lord with me,
With me exalt his name!
When in distress to him I called,
He to my rescue came.
4 The hosts of God encamp around
The dwellings of the just:
Deliverance he affords to all
Who on his succour trust.
5 O make but trial of his love;
Experience will decide
How blessed they are, and only they,
Who in his truth confide.
6 Fear him, ye saints, and you will then
Have nothing else to fear;
Make you his service your delight,
He'll make your wants his care.
