Lyrics

O Lord, my God!
I will keep on thanking You—forever
O, Father!
O Lord, my God!
I will keep on thanking You—forever
O, Father!
You lift me up, You keep my enemies away.
My soul sings of your faithfulness!
You’re my Foundation, Lord,
A rock that I can lean on.
Your Word will live forevermore!
I know, my Lord,
That You have ransomed me from death.
O, help me never to forget!
Into Your hands
Do I commit my grateful spirit,
With You I will not be afraid!
O, Lord, my God,
How You have filled my emptiness.
I’m like a stream, You’re like the rain.
O, Lord my God,
Now I can see Your plan for me—
Ev’rywhere I go, there You will be!
