Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
Now shall my solemn vows be paid|
To that Almighty Power,
That heard the long requests I made
In my distressful hour.
2. My lips and cheerful heart prepare
3. When on my head huge sorrows fell,|
I sought his heav'nly aid;
He saved my sinking soul from hell,
And death's eternal shade.
4. If sin lay covered in my heart,
5. But God (his name be ever blest)|
Has set my spirit free;
Nor turned from him my poor request,
Nor turned his heart from me.
