Alternate Tune:


The Lord I will at all times bless,
My mouth His praises shall express;
In Him shall all my boasting be,
While all the meek rejoice with me.

O magnify the Lord with me,
Let us to praise His name agree;
I sought the Lord, He answered me,
And from my fears he set me free.

We looked to Him and light received,
Ashamed we shall not be;
Our humble cry Je­ho­vah heard
From trouble set us free.

The angel of the Lord encamps
Around about His own,
Delivers them from all their foes,
Lest they be overthrown.

O taste and see that God is good
To all that seek His face;
Yea, blest the man that trusts in Him,
Confiding in His grace.

O fear the Lord, all ye His saints;
No want shall bring distress;
The lion’s young may pine for food,
The saints all good possess.
