Bless the work of my hands Oh! Lord
Bring forth your divine design
And dress me with a garment of light
And leave my old robes behind
Redeem me Oh Lord!
Return my glory!
So that I can give praises to the Father
Holy! Holy! Holy!
Bless the work of my hands Oh Lord!
Let me prosper in the light
Give me wisdom and wealth
And an obedient wife
So that my seeds may multiply
And dominate this earth
When you are close to the bosom of the Creator
You can never lose
Because the Lord does as he pleases
And blesses whom he choose
Show pity on your servant Oh Lord!
Because your mercy is great
The ruler of the Heaven and universe
The architect of men’s’ fate
By Your word it was created
And by your spirit you sent life
The Lord will save you from the sea of tribulation and strife
But we are poor and needy Oh my God!
Please do not cast us off
And even though the road may be rough
I will not lose God’s love
The Lord is the keeper of my soul
He is the Shepherd who keeps his sheep from going astray
And protects his chosen ones every night and day
The Lord is wonderful in every way
And he shows mercy to those who fear him
So I will abstain from sin
As I draw myself closer to him
Heathens wallow in a sea of mud
Until their iniquities be found to be evil
Because they disobeyed His word
In the eyes of the world they prosper
But they soon fade away and suffer
The righteous will never lack because the Lord will provide
I am shielded by the Lord
So why should I hide?
My enemies like a potsherd
And are smashed by His rod
He will protect those who obey his word
And make the meek strong
And the little one powerful
I will praise your name in the presence of the throng
I will praise your name because it is right
And never wrong
I will praise your name and make it my favourite song
From everlasting to everlasting
