|107 (2)||Psalm 107 Version 2||LM|
|FROM age to age exalt His name,
God and His grace are still the same,
The hungry soul He loves to bless,
And lifts the fainting from distress.
|2||But when our hearts rebel, and rise
Against the God that rules the skies,
When we reject His heavenly Word,
And slight the counsels of the Lord . . .
|3||Then will He surely bring us down,
To suffer loss beneath His frown,
Wander through life with grief and tears,
Approaching death through wasted years.
|4||But if to God we raise our cries,
He’ll make the dawning light arise,
Scatter the ignorance of night,
Reveal His love and saving might.
|5||He cuts the bars of brass in two,
And lets rejoicing prisoners through,
Removes the pall of guilt and grief
And gives the seeking soul relief.
|6||O may the people now record
The lasting goodness of the Lord;
How great His works, how kind His ways!
Let every tongue proclaim His praise.
