PSALM 118:14-29
This is the meter of such hymns as "O Master, Let Me Walk with Thee" and "Lord, Speak to Me"

1.  Hear the glad songs of vic-to-ry
    In the en-camp-ment of the just.
    "The Lord's right hand does val-iant-ly,
    It is ex-alt-ed in its pow'r."
2.  I shall not die, but I shall live,
    And tell to all the deeds of God.
    Though I have suf-fered pun-ish-ment,
    God did not give me o'er to death.
3.  O-pen the gates of right-eous-ness,
    That I may en-ter and thank God.
    This is the gate of God the Lord,
    On-ly the right-eous can come in.
4.  I thank you that you an-swered me,
    That my sal-va-tion you've be-come.
    The stone the build-ers turned a-way
    Has now be-come the cor-ner-stone.
5.  This is the do-ing of the Lord,
    And it is marv-elous in our eyes.
    This is the day the Lord has made,
    Let us re-joice, let us be glad.
6.  Save us, O Lord, we pray to you;
    Give us suc-cess, we pray, O Lord.
    Blest he who comes in God's own name.
    From God's own Tem-ple we bless you.
7.  You are my God, I give you thanks;
    You are my God, I will praise you.
    Give thanks to God, for he is good
    His stead-fast love for-ev-er lasts.
