THANKS BE UNTO GOD (PSALM 118)

1. Thanks be unto God,
whose love endureth forever.
Thanks be un-to God,
who hears our prayers,
and sets us free.
What have I to fear.
I know that my God is near me.
What be mortal man,
with God our certain victory.

Refrain

You are our God.
Your light shines up-on us.
We offer thanks-giving to You.
You are our God,
and we will exalt You.
You are good,
and Your love ever true.


2. Thus, I do not die,
but I now live to proclaim You.
Live, to tell Your love,
and all the mighty works You do.
Trust not things of man,
for only God is salvation.
Things of man shall pass,
'Tis only God's love that is true.

3. Lord, You are my help.
You are the joy of the morrow.
Lord, You are the song.
You are the melody I sing.
Lord, You are my strength.
You are my comfort in sorrow.
Lord, I find salvation
in the shelter of Your wings.
