1 I thank You, Lord, with all my heart
Whenever good men gather,
Your works are great, sublime and just,
To study them is pleasure.
Unchanging is Your righteousness
Imprinted on my mem'ry
Your tenderness I know so well,
For ever, Lord, I'll thank You.

2 I thank You, Lord, with all my heart
Whenever I remember,
The way You fed the wanderers
So hungry in the desert.
You proved Your power before their eyes
Your covenant You've honoured
The promised land was theirs at last,
For ever, Lord, I'll thank You.

3 I thank You, Lord, with all my heart
Whenever I am fearful,
For I recall Your promises
Dependable as always.
Your truth and righteousness are sure,
O holy Lord, Redeemer,
I'm lost in wonder as I learn,
For ever, Lord I'll thank You.
