1. Lord, I will sing to Thee:
For, thou displeased wast:
And yet withdrew'st thy wrath from me,
And sent me comfort hast.

2. Thou art my health, on whom
A fearelesse Trust I lay:
For thou oh Lord,thou art become
My strength, my Song, my Stay.

3. And with rejoucing now,
Sweet waters we convay
Forth of those Springs, whence Life doth flow;
And thus we therefore say;

4. Oh, sing unto the Lord:
His Name and workes proclaime:
Yea, to the People beare record,
That glorious is his Name.

6. Oh, sing aloud all ye,
Oh, Sion hill that dwell!
For, lo, Thy Holy One in thee
Is great, oh Israel.
