Stanza Poetry Source by First Line
1
My soul repeat His praise,
Whose mercies are so great,
Whose anger is so slow to rise,
So ready to abate.


My soul, repeat his praise, Stanza 1
2
High as the heav’ns are raised,
Above the ground we tread,
So far the riches of His grace,
Our highest thoughts exceed.


My soul, repeat his praise, Stanza 3
3
His pow’r subdues our sins,
And His forgiving love,
Far as the east is from the west,
Doth all our guilt remove.


My soul, repeat his praise, Stanza 4
