154. L. M. Tate & Brady. Praise and Holiness.
1 O render thanks to God above,
The fountain of eternal love;
Whose mercy firm through ages past
Has stood and shall forever last.
2 Who can his mighty deeds express? --
Not only vast, but numberless!
What mortal eloquence can raise
His tribute of immortal praise?
3 Happy are they, and only they,
Who from thy judgments never stray;
Who know what's right, nor only so,
But always practise what they know.
4 Extend to me that favor, Lord,
Thou to thy chosen dost afford:
When thou return'st to set them free,
Let thy salvation visit me.
