Christ My Song - 289
I will praise thee every day - O Lord, I will praise thee
(William Cowper/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
O Lord, I will praise thee.
1. I will praise thee every day,
now thine anger's turned away!
Comfortable thoughts arise
from the bleeding Sacrifice.
2. Here in the fair gospel-field,
wells of free salvation yield
streams of life, a plenteous store,
and my soul shall thirst no more.
3. Jesus is become at length
my salvation and my strength;
and his praises shall prolong,
while I live, my pleasant song.
4. Praise ye then his glorious name,
publish his exalted fame!
Still his worth your praise exceeds,
excellent are all his deeds.
5. Raise again the joyful sound,
let the nations roll it round!
Zion, shout, for this is he,
God the Saviour dwells in thee!
William Cowper, The Complete Poetical Works of William Cowper, 1853(?), 238.
