1 Now in a song of grateful praise,
To my dear Lord my voice I'll raise;
With all the saints I'll join to tell,
That Jesus has done all things well.

2 All worlds his glorious power confess,
His wisdom all his works express;
But O! his love what tongue can tell,
My Jesus has done all things well.

3 How sovereign, merciful and free,
Has been his love to sinful me!
He plucked me from the jaws of hell,
My Jesus has done all things well.

4 I spurned his grace, I broke his laws,
And then he undertook my cause;
To save me though I did rebel,
My Jesus has done all things well.

5 And since my soul hath known his love,
What blessings hath he made me prove!
Mercy which doth all praise excel,
My Jesus has done all things well.

6 Whene'er my Savior or my God,
Hath on me laid his gentle rod;
I know in all that has befel,
That Jesus has done all things well.

7 Though many a flaming fiery dart,
Attempt their level at my heart;
With this I all my rage repel--
My Jesus has done all things well.

8 Sometimes the Lord his face doth hide,
To make me pray, and kill my pride;
Yet on my heart it still doth dwell,
That Jesus has done all things well.

9 Soon I shall pass this vale of death,
And in his arms resign my breath:
Yet then my happy soul shall tell,
How Jesus has done all things well.

10 And when to those bright worlds I rise,
And join the anthem with the skies;
Above the rest, this note shall swell,
My Jesus has done all things well.

Medley, Samuel, born June 23, 1738, at Cheshunt, Herts, where his father kept a school. He received a good education; but not liking the business to which he was apprenticed, he entered the Royal Navy. Having been severely wounded in a battle with the French fleet off Port Lagos, in 1759, he was obliged to retire from active service. A sermon by Dr. Watts, read to him about this time, led to his conversion. He joined the Baptist Church in Eagle Street, London, then under the care of Dr. Gifford, and shortly afterwards opened a school, which for several years he conducted with great success. Having begun to preach, he received, in 1767, a call to become pastor of the Baptist church at Watford. Thence, in 1772, he removed to Byrom Street, Liv… Go to person page >
