Johann M. Haydn


O praise ye the Lord,
With heart and with voice;
His mercies record,
And round Him rejoice.
Ye children of Zion,
Your Savior adore;
And learn to rely on
His grace evermore.

Repose on His arm,
Ye sheep of His fold.
What terror can harm
With Him to uphold?
His saints are His treasure;
Their peace He will seek;
And pour without measure
His gifts on the meek.

Go on in His might,
Ye men of the Lord:
His word be your light,
His promise your sword.
The King of Salvation
Your foes will subdue;
And their degradation
Bring glory to you.
