O Israel, Put Your Hope Upon the Lord
mp3 | leadsheet

men: Is there ambition in my heart?

women: Search, gracious God, and see;

men: Or do I act a haughty part?

women: Lord, I appeal to thee.

Refrain:

O Israel, put your hope upon the Lord

From this time forth, forevermore (2x)

men: I charge my thoughts, be humble still,

women: And all my carriage mild,

men: Content, my Father, with thy will,

women: And quiet as a child.

Refrain:

O Israel, put your hope upon the Lord

From this time forth, forevermore (2x)

men: The patient soul, the lowly mind,

women: Shall have a large reward:

men: Let saints in sorrow lie resigned,

women: And trust a faithful Lord.

Refrain:

O Israel, put your hope upon the Lord

From this time forth, forevermore (2x)

words: Isaac Watts

music: Bruce Benedict, 2010
