I will sing praises unto Thy name.@2 Samuel 22:50

J. W. Cul­lom, 1909 (🔊 pdf nwc).

I will sing of my Savior
And tell of His love,
His compassion so boundless and free;
He went down into death
To deliver my soul,
And He brought full salvation to me.

Refrain

I’ll tell in glad strains
How He’s broken my chains,
And thrown open my prison below;
Bounding high on glad wing,
Like a bird I will sing,
How He saved me from sorrow and woe.

There were many sad years,
Full of grief and of fears,
And my bondage increased day by day;
But He threw in His light,
And dispelled all my night,
And my darkness all vanished away.

Refrain

Now by day and by night,
All my pathway is bright,
And my heart sings aloud in His praise;
Full salvation complete,
All my foes ’neath my feet,
And I run with delight in His ways.
