Full Text

1 My soul, inspired with sacred love,
God's holy Name for ever bless;
Of all His favours mindful prove,
And still Thy grateful thanks express.

2 'Tis He that all thy sins forgives,
And after sickness makes thee sound;
From danger He thy life retrieves,
By Him with grace and mercy crown'd.

3 The Lord abounds with tender love
And unexampled acts of grace;
His waken'd wrath doth slowly move,
His willing mercy flies apace.

4 God will not always harshly chide,
But with His anger quickly part;
And loves His punishment to guide
More by His love than our desert.

5 As far as 'tis from east to west,
So far has he our sins removed;
Who, with a father's tender breast,
Has such as fear Him always loved.
