Lyrics

Title: Psalm of Thanks
Lyricist: John William Gordon (paraphrase of Psalm 18)
Composer: John William Gordon

My God, my Savior, heard my voice.
On wings of wind He flew
And me from snares of death He plucked,
From waters deep He drew.
He is my rock, my tower tall,
He is my stay: I cannot fall.

God pays in kind a recompense,
Uprightness to the pure.
The merciful, with mercy blest,
Find refuge safe and sure.
He lights my candle, makes it glow,
Illumes the darkness of my woe.

Thy strong right hand has held me up,
No violence I meet.
Thy perfect way enlarged my steps,
My pathway is complete.
Love’s panoply shields me from hate,
Thy gentleness has made me great.
