based on Psalm 34
All our days we will bless the Lord,
Bless and hallow his Name adored;
Call together to God most high,
Drawn to him who will hear our cry;
Ever look to him, Lord indeed,
Friend and Father to those in need.
God our refuge, our shield and sword,
He himself is our great reward.
In his service, with love and fear,
Joy be theirs who in faith draw near;
Known and cherished in all their ways,
Life possessing and length of days.
May no lies on our lips be heard,
No dishonouring deed or word;
Over all is the Lord above,
Peace bestowing and steadfast love,
Quick to answer and take our part,
Rich in mercy to heal the heart.
So delivered from hour to hour,
Trusting God and his sovereign power,
Uncondemned at his judgment throne,
Victors ever by grace alone,
We will publish his Name abroad:
All our days we will bless the Lord.
