5 Let All Things Now Living Let all things now living, a song of thanksgiving to God their Creator triumphantly raise.
6 Who fashioned and made us, protected and stayed us, Who guides us and leads to the end of our days.
7 His banners are o’er us, His light goes before us, A pillar of fire shining forth in the night.
8 ‘Til shadows have vanished and darkness is banished, As forward we travel, from light into light.
9 His law He enforces: the stars in their courses, the sun in its orbit, obediently shine;
10 The hills and the mountains, the rivers and fountains, The deeps of the ocean proclaim Him divine!
11 We too should be voicing our love and rejoicing, With glad adoration a song let us raise,
12 ‘Til all things now living unite in thanksgiving To God in the highest - Hosanna and Praise! ***
13 My heart is filled with thankfulness to Him who bore my pain;
14 Who plumbed the depths of my disgrace and gave me life again;
15 Who crushed my curse of sinfulness and clothes me with His light
16 and wrote His law of righteousness with pow’r upon my heart.
17 My heart is filled with thankfulness to Him who walks beside
18 Who floods my weaknesses with strength and causes fears to fly.
19 Whose ev’ry promise is enough for ev’ry step I take.
20 Sustaining me with arms of love and crowning me with grace.
21 My heart is filled with thankfulness to Him who reigns above;
22 Whose wisdom is my perfect peace, whose ev’ry thought is love.
23 For ev’ry day I have on earth is given by the King.
24 So I will give my life, my all, to love and follow Him. ***
25 In Christ alone my hope is found-- He is my Light, my Strength, my Song!This Cornerstone,this solid ground--Firm through the fiercestdrought and storm!
26 My Comforter, my All in all; Here in the love of Christ I stand. What heights of love,what depths of peace--when fears are stilled,when strivings cease!My Comforter, my All in all;Here in the love of Christ I stand.
27 In Christ alone, who took on flesh- Fullness of God in helpless Babe. This Gift of love and righteousness--Scorned by the onesHe came to save;
28 ‘Til on the cross as Jesus died the wrath of God was satisfied- For every sin on Him was laid;Here in the death of ChristI live!
29 There in the ground, His body lay- Up from the grave He rose again! Light of the worldby darkness slain.Then bursting forthin glorious dayUp from the grave He rose again!
30 And as He stands in victory Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me-- For I am His and He is mineBought with the precious blood of Christ!
31 this is the power of Christ in me! Jesus commands my destiny; No guilt in life,no fear in death--this is the power of Christ in me!From life’s first cry,to final breath,Jesus commands my destiny;
32 Can ever pluck me from His hand-- No power of hell,no scheme of man,Can ever pluck me from His hand--‘Til He returns or calls me home;Here in the power of ChristI’ll stand!***
