Hymn of the day

by Richard on June 25, 2006

I’ll praise my Maker while I’ve breath,
and when my voice is lost in death,
praise shall employ my nobler powers;
my days of praise shall ne’er be past,
while life, and thought, and being last,
or immortality endures.

Happy the man whose hopes rely
on Israel’s God: he made the sky,
and earth, and seas, with all their train;
his truth for ever stands secure,
he saves th’oppressed, he feeds the poor,
and none shall find his promise vain.

The Lord pours eyesight on the blind;
the Lord supports the fainting mind;
he sends the labouring conscience peace;
he helps the stranger in distress,
the widow, and the fatherless,
and grants the prisoner sweet release.

I’ll praise him while he lends me breath,
and when my voice is lost in death,
praise shall employ my nobler powers;
my days of praise shall ne’er be past,
while life, and thought, and being last,
or immortality endures.

Isaac Watts

This song inspires me much that when leastening to it I just got the thought of the day when Peter was awaken from that deep sleep at the prison Cell that night by the Angel of the Lord by smoting him on the side and said to Peter put up thy loins and guard up like a man and walk straight before me thereby causing all the earthly prison security guards asleep and Peter did so this is to tell us that nothing is too hard for the Lord he is the only overcomer in every situation, especialy in verse three of this song ” and grant the Prisoner a sweet release”
Amen.
