G.T. Smart : Through all the changing scenes of life (Wiltshire)

Lyrics Author: Nahum Tate

Tune Name: Wiltshire

Composer: George T. Smart


Through all the changing scenes of life,

In trouble and in joy,

The praises of my God shall still

My heart and tongue employ.

Of His deliverance I will boast,

Till all that are distressed

From my example courage take

And soothe their griefs to rest.

O magnify the Lord with me,

With me exalt His Name;

When in distress to Him I called,

He to my rescue came.

Their drooping hearts were soon refreshed,

Who looked to Him for aid;

Desired success in every face,

A cheerful air displayed.

“Behold,” they say, “Behold the man

Whom providence relieved;

The man so dangerously beset,

So wondrously retrieved!”

The hosts of God encamp around

The dwellings of the just;

Deliverance He affords to all

Who on His succor trust.

O make but trial of His love;

Experience will decide

How blest are they, 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.

While hungry lions lack their prey,

The Lord will food provide

For such as put their trust in Him,

And see their needs supplied.
