Original Trinity Hymnal, #522
From Psalm 34:1-4, 7-9
Through all the changing scenes of life,
In trouble and in joy,
The praises of my God shall still
My heart and tongue employ.
Of his deliv'rance I will boast,
Till all that are distressed
From my example comfort take,
And charm their griefs to rest.
O magnify the Lord with me,
With me exalt his Name;
When in distress to him I called,
He to my rescue came.
The hosts of God encamp around
The dwellings of the just;
Deliv'rance he affords to all
Who on his succor trust.
O make but trial of his love;
Experience will decide
How blest they are, and only they,
Who in his truth confide.
Fear him, ye saints; and you will then
Have nothing else to fear:
Make you his service your delight,
He'll make your wants his care.
