599. I Thank the Lord My Maker

1 I thank the Lord my Maker
For all His gifts to me;
For making me partaker
Of bounties rich and free;
For father and for mother,
Who give me clothes and food,
For sister and for brother,
And all the kind and good.

2 I thank the Lord my Saviour
Who came for me to do die,
And bless me with his favor,
And fit me for the sky,—
That all my sins out-blotted,
By Jesus washed away,
I may be found unspotted
When comes the final day.

3 I thank Lord for giving
The Spirit of His grace,
That I may serve him living,
And dying, reach the place
Where Jesus in His glory
I shall forever see,
And tell the wondrous story
Of all His love for me.
