Text: Isaac Watts, 1674 - 1748; based on Psalm 146
Scriptural References: Psalm 146 and 2 Nephi 4:34
Introduction & 4 verses:
Praise ye the Lord!
My heart shall join in work so pleasant,
Now, while the flesh is my abode,
And when my soul asends to God.
Praise shall empty my noblest powers
While immortality endures;
My days of praise shall ne'er be past
While life and thought and being last.
Why should I make a man my trust?
Princes must die and turn to dust.
Their breath departs;
their pomp and pow'r
And thoughts all vanish in an hour.
Happy the man whose hopes rely
On Israel's God!
He made the sky
And earth and seas with all their train,
And none shall find his promise vain.
A personal comment: This is the first hymn I've learned in quite some time. I heard it for the first time today in Sacrament Meeting.
