He Brought Me Out
Words by Rev. H.J. Zelley
Music and Chorus by H.L. Gilmour

Psalm 40:2
"He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay,
and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings."

divider

          My heart was distressed 'neath Jehovah's dread frown,
          And low in the pit where my sins dragged me down;
          I cried to the Lord from the deep miry clay,
          Who tenderly brought me out to golden day.

            Chorus
            He brought me out of the miry clay,
            He set my feet on the Rock to stay;
            He puts a song in my soul today,
            A song of praise, hallelujah!

          He placed me upon the strong Rock by His side,
          My steps were established and here I'll abide;
          No danger of falling while here I remain,
          But stand by His grace until the crown I gain.

            Chorus
            He brought me out of the miry clay,
            He set my feet on the Rock to stay;
            He puts a song in my soul today,
            A song of praise, hallelujah!

          He gave me a song, 'twas a new song of praise;
          By day and by night its sweet notes I will raise;
          My heart's overflowing, I'm happy and free.
          I'll praise my Redeemer, Who has rescued me.

            Chorus
            He brought me out of the miry clay,
            He set my feet on the Rock to stay;
            He puts a song in my soul today,
            A song of praise, hallelujah!

          I'll sing of His wonderful mercy to me,
          I'll praise Him till all men His goodness shall see;
          I'll sing of salvation at home and abroad,
          Till many shall hear the truth and trust in God.

            Chorus
            He brought me out of the miry clay,
            He set my feet on the Rock to stay;
            He puts a song in my soul today,
            A song of praise, hallelujah!
