O, give thanks to the Lord!
(James Smith, "Sunny Subjects for All Seasons" 1858)
"O, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! His mercy endures forever!" 1 Chronicles 16:34
O, give thanks to the Lord, Christian, for He has not dealt with you after your sins, nor rewarded you according to your iniquities! He has . . .
pardoned your sins,
justified your soul,
renewed your nature, and
given you a title to everlasting life!
He has thus . . .
prevented your eternal ruin,
borne with your faults and follies,
supplied all your needs,
guided your steps, and
promised to conduct you to glory!
His mercy has been ever great toward you!
"O, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever!" Psalm 107:1
