Hymn/Song Information

Long as I live I'll bless thy name My




Long as I live I'll bless thy name,
My King, my God of love;
My work and joy shall be the same
In the bright world above.


Great is the Lord, his power unknown,
And let his praise be great;
I'll sing the honours of thy throne,
Thy works of grace repeat.


Thy grace shall dwell upon my tongue;
And while my lips rejoice,
The men that hear my sacred song
Shall join their cheerful voice.


Fathers to sons shall teach thy name,
And children learn thy ways;
Ages to come thy truth proclaim,
And nations sound thy praise.


Thy glorious deeds of ancient date
Shall through the world be known;
Thine arm of power, thy heav'nly state,
With public splendour shown.


The world is managed by thy hands,
Thy saints are ruled by love;
And thine eternal kingdom stands,
Though rocks and hills remove.


---Alternative verses---


Great is the Lord, his power unknown,
O let his praise be great;
I'll sing the honours of thy throne,
Thy works of grace repeat.


Thy grace shall dwell upon my tongue;
And while my lips rejoice,
The men who hear my sacred song
Shall join their cheerful voice.
