118c. Thee, Jehovah, will I bless

1 THEE, Jehovah, will I bless;
Thou didst my request allow;
Thee my Saviour I confess,
Author of my health art Thou.

2 Lo, the stone, which once aside
By the builders' hands was thrown,
See it now the building's pride,
See it now the cornerstone!

3 Lo, we hail Jehovah's deed,
Strange and wondrous in our eyes!
Lo, the day our God hath made!
Bid the voice of gladness rise.

4 Save, Hosanna! Lord, I pray!
Save, Hosanna, God of might!
Lord, for us Thy pow'r display;
Lord, on us Thy favour light!

5 He, Jehovah, is our Lord;
He, our God, on us hath shined;
Bind the sacrifice with cord,
To the hornèd altar bind.

6 Thee I bless, my God and King!
Thee, my God and King, I hail!
Hallelujah, shout and sing!
Never shall His goodness fail.
