Psalm 31


1 The Lord who hath redeem'd our souls
From death and endless woe,
Whose wisdom each event controls,
From whom all mercies flow.
He hath decreed that even here
His faithful sons shall prove,
In weal and woe, 'midst toil and fear,
The riches of His love.

2 But, oh! when life's brief term is o'er,
And heaven unfolds her gates,
For them what blessings are in store.
For them what glory waits!
Praise then, the Lord, all ye His saints,
To Him devote your hearts;
He hears, He pities your complaints,
Health, strength, and joy imparts.
