Verse 1

My heart was distressed 'neath Jehovah's dread frown
And low in the pit where my sins dragged me down
I cried to the Lord from the deep miry clay
Who tenderly bro't me out to golden day


He bro't me out of the miry clay
He set my feet on the Rock to stay
He puts a song in my soul today
A song of praise hallelujah

Verse 2

He placed me upon the strong rock by His side
My steps were established and here I'll abide
No danger of falling while here I remain
But stand by His grace until the crown I gain

Verse 3

He gave me a song 'twas a new song of praise
By day and by night its sweet notes I will raise
My heart's overflowing I'm happy and free
I'll praise my Redeemer who has rescued me

Verse 4

I'll sing of His wonderful mercy to me
I'll praise Him till all men His goodness shall see
I'll sing of salvation at home and abroad
Till many shall hear the truth and trust in God

Composer: Henry Lake Gilmour

Sheet Music file (.pdf) also available.

Updated Format! Beginning in November of 2016, we changed the way we formatted our PowerPoint files. The font is larger and the staff lines are bolder, making the songs easier to read from a greater distance, including smaller screens/monitors in the rear of the sanctuary.

All songs digitized previous to that date are in the "older" format.
