34Psalm 34CM
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 distressed
From my example comfort take,
    And charm their griefs to rest.
3  O magnify the Lord with me;
    With me exalt His name;
When in distress to Him I called,
    He to my rescue came.
4  The hosts of God encamp around
    The dwellings of the just;
Deliverance He affords to all
    Who in His mercy trust.
5  O make but trial of His love;
    Experience will decide
How blessed are they, and only they,
    Who in His truth confide!
6  Fear Him, ye saints, and you will then
    Have nothing else to fear;
Come, make His service your delight,
    Your wants shall be His care.
