In Thankful Remembrance for My Dear Husbands Safe Arrival

by
 What shall I render to Thy name 
Or how Thy praises speak? 
My thanks how shall I testify? 
O Lord, Thou know'st I'm weak.
I owe so much, so little can Return unto Thy name, Confusion seizes on my soul, And I am filled with shame.
O Thou that hearest prayers, Lord, To Thee shall come all flesh Thou hast me heard and answered, My plaints have had access.
What did I ask for but Thou gav'st? What could I more desire? But thankfulness even all my days I humbly this require.
Thy mercies, Lord, have been so great In number numberless, Impossible for to recount Or any way express.
O help Thy saints that sought Thy face T' return unto Thee praise And walk before Thee as they ought, In strict and upright ways.
