Come Let Us Praise Gods Holy Name
Come, let us praise God’s holy name,
And thank him for his love and grace,
Who to our help and rescue, came
And put an end to our distress.
How greatly were we terrified,
When we began to feel the rod;
Death threat’ned us on ev’ry side,
As the just punishments of god.
We were distress’d on every hand,
Involv’d in all the depth of woes;
When it appear’d, our guilty land
Should be destroy’d by cruel foes.
But thanks be to our gracious Lord;
Who freely will our sins forgive;
Who gave us not our just reward,
But spares us rebels, still to live.
God has restor’d our peace again,
O may it never more depart:
May we a greater peace obtain:
The peace of God within our heart.
