How awesome, God, are all Your deeds
Before Your pow’r the foe concedes
While all the earth bows down to You
And lifts their praise to Your name, too.
Come and behold the works of God
His awesome dealings we applaud
He turned the sea into dry land
We crossed on foot by His command.
His eyes keep watch on enemies
Before Him every rebel flees
We bless our God, our voices raise
He saved us, let us sound our praise.
Like silver in the furnace tried
You let men over our heads ride
When thru the fire and flood we passed
You led us to abundance vast.
The promises and vows I made
When I appealed to You for aid
I come now to Your house to bring
Choice sacrifice and offering.
Come, listen, all who fear the Lord
As I, His wonders, now record
When deep in trouble I cried out
My enemies He then did rout.
If in my heart sin did abound
No help from God would then be found
But He has heard my feeble prayer
In mercy He my life did spare.
So join with me in blessing God
Declare His praise home and abroad
He did not from my pleas refrain
Nor His great love and grace restrain.
