181. God Our Deliverer

1 Blest be the Lord! for us He cares
And daily all our burden bears;
Our God is mighty strong to save;
Jehovah frees us from the grave.

2 God's unrelenting enemies
No peace shall find in earth or seas;
His people shall triumphant go
Victorious over ev'ry foe.

3 With glorious pomp our King and God
Has entered into His abode,
With sacred minstrelsy and song,
While maidens with their timbrels throng.

4 Assemble ye before His face,
All ye that spring from Israel's race;
Ye chosen tribes, with one accord
Come ye, and bless your God, the Lord.
