289 (C.M.) Samuel Medley

Now in Thy praise, eternal King,

Be all my thoughts employed;

While of this precious truth I sing,

"Cast down, but not destroyed."

Oft the united powers of Hell

My soul have sore annoyed;

And yet I live this truth to tell,

"Cast down, but not destroyed."

In all the paths through which I've passed

What mercies I've enjoyed;

And this shall be my song at last,

"Cast down, but not destroyed."

When I with God in Heaven appear,

There shall I Him adore;

"Destroyed" shall be my sin and fear,

And I "cast down" no more.
