Give ear unto God's Holy Word And hear His perfect law; Remember what His hand hath done And tell His works in awe; Recount unto thy children's hearts The things which thou wast toldâ€” The truth which thou hast heard and known From generations old.
Refrain: So shall thy children hope in God And not forget forget His name, But follow in the ways of Him Who ever is the same.
Recount the works of evil men Who turned their hearts from God; Recall the judgment of the Lord, Behold His chast'ning rod; Reproach the men of fainting heart Who fled before the fight; Acclaim within thy house the men Who fought for truth and right.
Remember God's almighty hand To those in deepest need; His Providential care for those Who trusted Him indeed. From rocks there issued healing streams, The heavens yielded breadâ€” Make known to all God's wondrous care Wheree'er His hand hath led.
