On the day I called

Psalm 137

  • Refrain:
    On the day I called you answered me,
    you answered me, O Lord.
  1. I thank you, Lord, with all my heart,
    you heard the words of my prayer.
    Before the angels I will bless you,
    worship and adore you.
  2. I thank you for your faithfulness,
    you love me more than I know,
    when I called and you answered,
    you strengthened my soul.
  3. Stretch out your hands, Lord,
    keep me safe,
    guide me, O Lord, protect me,
    for your love is eternal
    and holds us forever.
