Thee Will I Praise With My Whole Heart M


Thee will I praise with my whole heart,
my Lord my God, always;
Even in the presence of the gods
I will advance thy praise.

Towards thy holy temple I
will look, and worship thee:
And praised in my thankful mouth
thy holy Name shall be:

Ev’n for thy loving-kindness’ sake,
and for thy truth withal:
For thou thy Name hast by thy word
advanced over all.

When I did call, thou heardest me,
and thou hast made also
The power of increased strength
within my soul to grow.

Yea, all the kings on earth shall give
praise unto thee, O Lord:
For they of thy most holy mouth
have heard the mighty word.

They of the ways of God the Lord
in singing shall repeat;
Because the glory of the Lord
is so exceeding great.

The Lord is high, but yet he doth
the lowly man respect;
The proud he knows far off, and them
with scorn he doth reject.

Altho’ in midst of trouble I
do walk, yet shall I stand
Reviv’d by thee; for thou, O Lord,
wilt stretch out thy right-hand.

Upon the wrath of all my foes,
and saved shall I be
By thy right-hand, the Lord God will
perform his work to me.

Thy mercies last for evermore,
Lord, do me not forsake:
Forsake me not, who am the work
which thy own hand did make.
