Lord, I will praise Thy name,
For Thou hast set me free,
Nor suf­fered foes to claim
A tri­umph over me;
O Lord, my God, to Thee I cried
And Thou hast health and strength sup­plied,
And Thou hast health and strength sup­plied.

Thou hast my soul re­stored
When I was near the grave,
And from the depths, O Lord,
Thou gra­cious­ly didst save;
O ye His saints, sing to the Lord,
With thanks His ho­li­ness re­cord,
With thanks His ho­li­ness re­cord.

His wrath is quick­ly past,
His fa­vor lives for aye;
Though grief a night may last,
Joy comes at break of day;
In my pros­pe­ri­ty secure
I said, My peace shall still en­dure;
I said, My peace shall still en­dure.
