The Lord I will at all times bless,
My mouth His praises shall express;
In Him shall all my boasting be,
While all the meek rejoice with me.
O magnify the Lord with me,
Let us to praise His name agree;
I sought the Lord, He answered me,
And from my fears he set me free.
We looked to Him and light received,
Ashamed we shall not be;
Our humble cry Jehovah heard
From trouble set us free.
The angel of the Lord encamps
Around about His own,
Delivers them from all their foes,
Lest they be overthrown.
O taste and see that God is good
To all that seek His face;
Yea, blest the man that trusts in Him,
Confiding in His grace.
O fear the Lord, all ye His saints;
No want shall bring distress;
The lion’s young may pine for food,
The saints all good possess.
