PSALM 34:1-8
METER:  77 77 D
This is the meter of the hymn "Come, Ye Thankful People, Come"

1.  I will bless God at all times;
    Praise shall e'er be in my mouth.
    In the Lord my soul does boast;
    Let th' af-flict-ed hear with joy.
    Mag-ni-fy the Lord with me,
    All to-geth-er praise God's name!
    I sought God; he an-swered me,
    He saved me from all my fears.
2.  Look to him, be ra-di-ant;
    So you'll nev-er be a-shamed.
    When I cried, the Lord heard me,
    From my trou-bles God saved me.
    'Round all those who fear the Lord
    Camps God's an-gel, sav-ing them.
    Taste and see that God is good!
    Hap-py those who trust in him.
