Ponder the Praise

This is one of my very favorite hymns, so much that two of its words are my tag.   Purely coincidental.   Or is it?

Be Joyful!

 “Praise to the Lord who will prosper your work
and defend you; 
Surely His goodness and mercy shall daily attend you.  
Ponder anew 
What the Almighty can do
As with His love He befriends you.”                                   
 Words: Jo­ach­im Ne­an­der, in A und Ω Glaub- und Lieb­es­ü­bung (Stras­lund: 1680); trans­lat­ed from Ger­man to Eng­lish by Cath­er­ine Wink­worth, 1863.
