At all times I will bless him

1. At all times I will bless him,

his praise shall be in my mouth,

my soul makes its boast in the Lord.

The humble man shall hear of him, the afflicted will be glad,

and join with me to magnify the Lord.

 

Let us exalt his name together forever:

I sought the Lord, he heard me

and delivered me from my fears.

Let us exalt his name together forever:

Oh sing his praises, magnify the Lord.

 

2. The angel of the Lord encamps

'round those who fear his name

to save them and deliver them

from harm.

Though lions roar with hunger,

we lack for no good thing.

No wonder then we praise him

with our song

 

3. Come, children, now and hear me,

if you would see long life,

just keep your lips

from wickedness and lies.

Do good and turn from evil,

seek peace instead of strife.

Love righteousness

and God will hear your cry.
