Come, ye that fear the Lord, and hear
What He has done for me;
My cry for help is turned to praise,
For He has set me free.
Through pain and trou­ble Thou hast led,
And hum­bled all our pride,
But, in the end, to li­ber­ty
And wealth Thy hand did guide.

If in my heart I sin re­gard,
My pray­er He will not hear;
But tru­ly God has heard my voice,
My pray­er has reached His ear.
O let the Lord, our gra­cious God,
Forever bless­èd be,
Who has not turned my pray­er from Him,
Nor yet His grace from me.

Here in Thy house I give to Thee
The life that Thou dost bless,
And pay the so­lemn vows I made
When I was in dis­tress.
O all ye peo­ples, bless our God,
Aloud pro­claim His praise,
Who safe­ly holds our soul in life,
And stead­fast makes our ways.
