1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Who look to Him shall walk in light,
With joy their faces shall be bright.
Distressed, they cried; the Lord arose
And saved them out of all their woes.
4. Around His saints as watch and ward
Encamps the angel of the Lord;
That God is good, O taste and see,
Who trusts in Him shall blessed be.
5. Fear Him, ye saints and do His will,
And all your needs He will fulfill,
Tho’ beasts of forest lack their food,
Those seeking God shall want no good.
6. Ye children, come and hear my voice,
And learn to make God’s fear your choice;
Who seek long life and happy days
Must learn to walk in wisdom’s ways.
7. Who fears the Lord must keep his tongue
From evil and his lips from wrong,
Must do the good, from evil cease,
And ever seek and follow peace.
