Words: Isaac Watts

Common Metre Tunes
v. 8--15.
A general song of praise to God.
   1  Among the princes, earthly gods,
         There's none hath power divine;
      Nor is their nature, mighty Lord,
         Nor are their works, like thine.
   2  The nations thou hast made shall bring
         Their off'rings round thy throne;
      For thou alone dost wondrous things,
         For thou art God alone.
   3  Lord, I would walk with holy feet;
         Teach me thine heav'nly ways,
      And my poor scattered thoughts unite
         In God my Father's praise.
   4  Great is thy mercy, and my tongue
         Shall those sweet wonders tell,
      How by thy grace my sinking soul
         Rose from the deeps of hell.
