William Wheall, d. 1727
1 THEE will I praise with all my heart,
I will sing praise to thee
2 Before the gods: and worship will
Toward thy sanctuary.
I'll praise thy name, even for thy truth,
And kindness of thy love;
For thou thy word hast magnified
All thy great name above.
3 Thou didst me answer in the day
When I did cry to thee;
And thou with strength my fainting soul
Didst strengthen inwardly.
4 All kings upon the earth that are
Shall give thee praise, O Lord:
What time they from thy mouth shall hear
Thy true and faithful word.
5 Yea, in the righteous ways of God
With gladness they shall sing:
For great's the glory of the Lord,
Who is for ever king.
6 The Lord is high, yet he regards
All those that lowly be;
Whereas the proud and lofty ones
Afar off knoweth he.
7 Though I in midst of trouble walk
I life from thee shall have:
'Gainst my foes' wrath thou'lt stretch thine hand;
Thy right hand shall me save.
8 All that which me concerns the Lord
Will surely perfect make:
Lord, still thy mercy lasts; do not
Thine own hands' works forsake.
