98. Through All the Changing Scenes of Life

1 Through all the changing scenes of life,
in trouble and in joy,
the praises of my God shall still
my heart and tongue employ.

2 Of his deliv'rance I will boast,
till all that are distressed
from my example comfort take,
and sooth their griefs to rest.

3 O magnify the Lord with me,
with me exalt his name;
when in distress to him I called,
he to my rescue came.

4 The hosts of God encamp around
the dwellings of the just;
deliv'rance he affords to all
who in his promise trust.

5 O make but trial of his love;
experience will decide
how blest they are, and only they,
who on his truth confide.

6 Fear him, ye saints, and you will then
have nothing else to fear;
make you his service your delight,
your wants shall be his care.
