125. O Thou, My Soul, Return in Peace

1 O thou, my soul, return in peace
to thine untroubled rest,
for thee the bounty of the Lord
abundantly hath blest.

2 He did indeed redeem my soul
that else in death had slept;
he hath mine eyes from tears set free,
my feet from stumbling kept.

3 What shall I render to the Lord,
what shall my off'ring be,
for all the gracious benefits
he hath bestowed on thee?

4 Salvation's cup my soul shall take
while to the Lord I pray,
and with his people I will meet
my thankful vows to pay.

5 Not lightly does the Lord permit
his chosen saints to die;
from death thou hast delivered me;
thy servant, Lord, am I.

6 Within his house, the house of prayer,
my soul shall bless the Lord,
and praises to his holy name
let all the saints accord.
