 1I'll praise my maker while I have breath
 2.i Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
 5I'll praise my maker
 6while I have breath,
 7and when my voice is lost in death,
 8praise shall employ my
 9nobler powers:
10my days of praise shall
11ne'er be past,
12while life and thought and being last,
13or immortality endures
16Happy the man whose hopes rely
17on Israel's God! He made the sky
18and earth and sea,
19with all their train:
20His truth for ever stands secure;
21He saves the oppressed,
22He feeds the poor,
23and none shall find
24His promise vain.
27The Lord gives eyesight
28to the blind;
29the Lord supports the fainting mind;
30He sends the labouring
31conscience peace:
32He helps the stranger in distress,
33the widow and the fatherless,
34and grants the prisoner
35sweet release.
38I'll praise Him while He
39lends me breath;
40and when my voice is lost in death,
41praise shall employ my
42nobler powers.
43My days of praise shall ne'er be past,
44while life and thought and being last,
45or immortality endures.
