Through all the changing scenes of life

Through all the changing scenes of life,
  In trouble and in joy,
The praises of my God shall still
  My heart and tongue employ.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
  With me exalt His name;
When in distress to Him I called,
  He to my rescue came.
The hosts of God encamp around
  The dwellings of the just;
Deliverance He affords to all
  Who on His succor trust.
Oh, make but trial of His love,
  Experience will decide
How blest they are, and only they,
  Who in His truth confide.
Fear Him, ye saints, and you will then
  Have nothing else to fear;
Make you His service your delight,
  Your wants shall be His care.


This hymn inspires me a lot.



Definitely through all times, joy or pain, we should always praise our Maker.

Very nice hymn.

This hymn is so inspiring and it reminds me of God's faithfulness, especially the last verse that speaks of His provision.

Thanks Lilly, this song has lifted my spirit. I sing it anytime when in the spirit of the Lord. It has brought tears to my eyes. I am glad your mother gave you that, because it is in the family.

Missing my watch night service back home. A must service hymn of the night!


What more can I do than to exalt His name......through all the changing scenes of 2013, in trouble and in joy, the Lord has been merciful. His praise will continually be on my lips. The hymn summarises it all.

I love this hymn so dearly, have not heard it for a very long time. Cannot get it out of my head. I hear it in my head during the night, songs of praise.
