Tuesday Hymn: “All You That Fear Jehovah’s Name

When I get busy, the first thing that suffers is my desire to be consistent in posting to this blog. However, today I am “getting back in the saddle again” and “taking up my pen” (how is that for the mixing of metaphors?) to post a Tuesday Hymn. Today’s hymn comes from The Psalter, 1912, and is entitled in The Trinity Hymnal, “All You That Fear Jehovah’s Name.” It is based on the latter part of Psalm 22 (verses 23-26, and 31 to be exact), and speaks of God’s glory (verse 1), His compassion (verse 2), His goodness (verse 3), His provision (verse 4), and His righteousness (verse 5). It is usually sung to the tune of PARK STREET and makes an excellent opening hymn of praise for the people of God gathered in corporate worship.

All ye that fear Jehovah’s Name,
His glory tell, His praise proclaim;
Ye children of His chosen race,
Stand ye in awe before His face,
Stand ye in awe before His face.

The suffering one He has not spurned
Who unto Him for succor turned;
From him He has not hid His face
But answered his request in grace,
But answered his request in grace.

O Lord, Thy goodness makes me raise
Amid Thy people songs of praise;
Before all them that fear Thee, now
I worship Thee and pay my vow,
I worship Thee and pay my vow.

For all the meek Thou wilt provide,
They shall be fed and satisfied;
All they that seek the Lord shall live
And never ending praises give,
And never ending praises give.

The Lord’s unfailing righteousness
All generations shall confess,
From age to age shall men be taught
What wondrous works the Lord has wrought,
What wondrous works the Lord has wrought.
