776 (C.M.) Isaac Watts

I love the Lord; He heard my cries,

And pitied ev'ry groan;

Long as I live, when troubles rise,

I'll hasten to His throne.

I love the Lord; He bowed His ear,

And chased my griefs away;

O, let my heart no more despair,

While I have breath to pray!

My flesh declined, my spirits fell,

And I drew near the dead;

While inward pangs and fears of hell

Perplexed my wakeful head.

"My God," I cried, "Thy servant save,

Thou ever good and just;

Thy pow'r can rescue from the grave,

Thy pow'r is all my trust."

The Lord beheld me sore distressed,

He bade my pains remove;

Return, my soul, to God thy rest,

For thou hast known His love.

My God hath saved my soul from death,

And dried my falling tears;

Now to His praise I'll spend my breath,

And my remaining years.
