[O now my soul go forth with praise]

O now my soul go forth with praise,

For God excepteth thee alwayes;

Thy life is bound up now in mee,

My precious death hath set thee free.

This Testimony I thee give,

As this bread was broaken, so was I,

That thou in mee mightest never dye:

My blood doth justify the same,

That thou mayest praise my holy Name.

My covenant I have made with thee,

So that thou art now whole set free:

Sin nor Satan cannot thee charge,

Because my love hath thee inlarg’d,

So sure as I am plas’t above,

So sure art thou now of my love.
