He rescued from the grave…I come alive

He rescued from the grave…I come alive

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his love endures forever.

Let the redeemed of the LORD say this –
those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,
those he gathered from the lands,
from east and west, from north and south.

♦

Some wandered in desert wastelands…
Then they cried out to the LORD…
and he delivered them…

Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for men

♦

Some sat in darkness and the deepest gloom,
prisoners suffering in iron chains…
Then they cried to the LORD…
and he saved them…

Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for men

♦

Some became fools through their rebellious ways
and suffered affliction…

Then they cried to the LORD…
he sent forth his word and healed them;
he rescued them from the grave.

Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for men.
Let them sacrifice thank offerings
and tell of his works with songs of joy.
