And ready to abate. 4 He pardons all thy sins,
Prolongs thy feeble breath; He heals thy sad infirmities,
And ransoms thee from death. 5 He clothes thee with his love,
Upholds thee by his truth, And, like the eagle, he renews
The vigour of thy youth. 6 Then bless his holy name,
Whose grace has made thee whole, Whose loving-kindness crowns thy days; O bless the Lord, my soul!

Has gather'd thick, and thunder'd loud,
His loving kindness, O how good! 4 Often I feel my sinful heart
Prone from my Jesus to depart;
His loving kindness changes not.

His loving kindness sing in death. 6 Then let me mount and soar away
To the bright world of endless day;
