Through All the Changing Scenes of Life

Melody - "Ich singe dir mit Herz und Mund", from the Harmonischer Liederschatz, Frankfurt, 1738; Seq. by Richard Jordan

Nahum Tate, Nicholas Brady, 1696

Through all the changing scenes of life,
In trouble and in joy,
The praises of my God shall still
My heart and tongue employ.

2. Of His deliverance I will boast
Till all that are distrest
From my example comfort take
And charm their griefs to rest.

3. Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
With me exalt His name!
When in distress to Him I cried,
He to my rescue came.

4. The hosts of God encamp around
The dwellings of the just;
Deliverance He affords to all
Who on His succor trust.

5. Oh, make but trial of His love!
Experience will decide
How blest are they, and only they,
Who in His truth confide.

6. Fear Him, ye saints, and you will then
Have nothing else to fear;
Make you His service your delight
He'll make your wants His care.
