1 O thou, my soul, return in peace
To thine untroubled rest,
For thee the bounty of the Lord
Abundantly hath blest.
2 God did indeed redeem my soul
That else in death had slept;
God hath mine eyes from tears set free,
My feet from stumbling kept.
3 What shall I render to the Lord,
What shall my offering be,
For all the gracious benefits
God hath bestowed on me?
4 Salvation's cup my soul shall take
While to the Lord I pray,
And with God's people I will meet,
My thankful vows to pay.
5 Not lightly dost Thou, Lord, permit
Thy chosen saints to die;
From death Thou hast delivered me;
Thy servant, Lord, am I.
6 Within God's house, the house of prayer,
My soul shall bless the Lord,
And praises to God's holy name
Let all the saints accord.
