Lyrics

Lord, I will praise Thy name,
For Thou hast set me free,
Nor suffered foes to claim
A triumph over me;
O Lord, my God, to Thee I cried
And Thou hast health and strength supplied,
And Thou hast health and strength supplied.

Thou hast my soul restored
When I was near the grave,
And from the depths, O Lord,
Thou graciously didst save;
O ye His saints, sing to the Lord,
With thanks His holiness record,
With thanks His holiness record.

His wrath is quickly past,
His favor lives for aye;
Though grief a night may last,
Joy comes at break of day;
In my prosperity secure
I said, My peace shall still endure;
I said, My peace shall still endure.
