KJV Text (alt. audio): Chapter 116:

     1 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. 2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live. 3 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. 4 Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. 5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. 6 The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. 7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee. 8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. 9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

     10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted: 11 I said in my haste, All men are liars. 12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. 14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people. 15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. 16 O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds. 17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD. 18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people, 19 In the courts of the Lord’s house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.(KJV)

1. Hark! ten thousand harps and voices 
Sound the note of praise above; 
Jesus reigns, and heaven rejoices,– 
Jesus reigns, the God of Love. 
See, He sits on yonder throne; 
Jesus rules the world alone. 

2. Come, ye saints, unite your praises 
With the angels round His throne; 
Soon, we hope, our God will raise us 
To the place where He is gone. 
Meet it is that we should sing, 
“Glory, glory, to our King!” 

3. Sing how Jesus came from heaven, 
How He bore the cross below, 
How all power to Him is given, 
How He reigns in glory now; 
‘Tis a great and endless theme, 
Oh, ’tis sweet to sing of Him! 

4. Jesus, hail! Thy glory brightens 
All above and gives it worth; 
Lord of Life, Thy smile enlightens, 
Cheers, and charms Thy saints on earth. 
When we think of love like Thine, 
Lord, we own it love divine. 

5. King of Glory, reign forever; 
Thine an everlasting crown. 
Nothing from Thy love shall sever 
Those whom Thou hast made Thine own, 
Happy objects of Thy grace, 
Destined to behold Thy face. 

6. Savior, hasten Thine appearing; 
Bring, oh, bring, the glorious day 
When, the awe-full summons hearing, 
Heaven and earth shall pass away; 
Then with golden harps we’ll sing, 
“Glory, glory, to our King!”
