I will extol Thee, O Lord; for Thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.@Psalm 30:1

Jesus, Thy saving name I bless,
Delivered out of my distress,
Thy faithfulness I prove;
I magnify Thy mercy’s power;
My refuge in the trying hour
Was Thy almighty love.

Snatched from the rage of cruel men,
Brought up out of the lion’s den,
And thro’ the burning flame:
Jesus, Thine outstretched hand I see,
Might, wisdom, strength ascribe to Thee,
And bless Thy saving name.

Hereby Thou favorest me, I know,
Because Thou wouldst not let the foe
My hunted soul destroy;
Better than life Thy favor is,
’Tis pure delight, and perfect bliss,
And everlasting joy.

Saved by a miracle of grace,
Lord, I with thankful heart embrace
The token of Thy love:
This, this, the comfortable sign,
That I the first born church shall join,
And bless Thy name above.
