We Thank Thee, O God, for a Prophet
, 19


1. We thank thee, O God, for a prophetTo guide us in these latter days.We thank thee for sending the gospelTo lighten our minds with its rays.We thank thee for every blessingBestowed by thy bounteous hand.We feel it a pleasure to serve theeAnd love to obey thy command.
2. When dark clouds of trouble hang o’er usAnd threaten our peace to destroy,There is hope smiling brightly before us,And we know that deliv’rance is nigh.We doubt not the Lord nor his goodness.We’ve proved him in days that are past.The wicked who fight against ZionWill surely be smitten at last.
3. We’ll sing of his goodness and mercy.We’ll praise him by day and by night,Rejoice in his glorious gospel,And bask in its life-giving light.Thus on to eternal perfectionThe honest and faithful will go,While they who reject this glad messageShall never such happiness know.
