The Lord I will at all times bless, In praise my mouth employ; My soul shall in Jehovah boast, The meek shall hear with joy. O magnify the Lord with me, Let us exalt His Name; When in distress on Him I called, He to my rescue came. 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 lions young may pine for food, The saints all good possess. 89. The Secret of a Happy Life. Psalm 34. C.M. Ye children, come, give ear to me And learn Jehovah's fear; He who would long and happy live, Let him my counsel hear. Restrain thy lips from speaking guile, From wicked speech depart, From evil turn and do the good, Seek peace with all thy heart. Jehovah's eyes are on the just, He hearkens to their cry; Against the wicked sets His face, Their very name shall die. The Lord may suffer many griefs Upon the just to fall, But He will bring them safely through, Delivering them from all. By evil are the evil slain, And they that hate the just; But all His servants God redeems, And safe in Him they trust. 90. Testimony and Praise. Psalm 34. L.M. 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 tears He set me free. 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. 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. Fear Him, ye saints, and do His will, And all your needs He will fulfill, Though beasts of forest lack their food, Those seeking God shall want no good. 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. 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. 91. The Safety of Believers. Psalm 34. L.M. God guards the good with watchful eye, His ear attentive to their cry, Against the wicked sets His face, From earth their memory to erase. The righteous cry, Jehovah hears. And rescues them from all their fears; The Lord draws nigh to broken hearts, To contrite spirits help imparts. Afflictions on the good must fall, But God will bring them safe through all; From harmful stroke He will defend, And sure and full deliverance send.
