Hymn/Song Information

Praise everlasting praise be paid To him that




Praise, everlasting praise, be paid
To him that earth's foundation laid;
Praise to the God whose strong decrees
Sway the creation as he please.


Praise to the goodness of the Lord,
Who rules his people by his word,
And there, as strong as his decrees,
He sets his kindest promises.


[Firm are the words his prophets give,
Sweet words on which his children live;
Each of them is the voice of God,
Who spoke, and spread the skies abroad.


Each of them powerful as that sound
That bid the new-made world go round;
And stronger than the solid poles
On which the wheel of nature rolls.]


Whence then should doubts and fears arise?
Why trickling sorrows drown our eyes?
Slowly, alas! our mind receives
The comfort that our Maker gives.


O for a strong, a lasting faith,
To credit what th' Almighty saith!
T' embrace the message of his Son,
And call the joys of heaven our own.


Then should the earth's old pillars shake,
And all the wheels of nature break,
Our steady souls should fear no more
Than solid rocks when billows roar.


Our everlasting hopes arise
Above the ruinable skies,
Where the eternal Builder reigns,
And his own courts his power sustains.


---Alternative verses---


Praise, everlasting praise, be paid
To him that earth's foundation laid;
Praise to the God whose strong decrees
Rule heaven and earth, the land and seas.


[Firm are the words his prophets give,
Sweet words on which his children live;
Each of them is the voice of God,
Who formed the heavens for his abode.


O for a strong, unwavering faith,
To credit what th' Almighty saith!
To embrace the gospel of his Son,
And make the joys of heaven our own.


So till the earth's old pillars shake,
And all the wheels of nature break,
Built on his truth, we'll fear no more
Than rocks when raging billows roar.


Then should the earth's foundations shake,
And all the wheels of nature break,
Our steady souls should fear no more
Than solid rocks when billows roar.


Our everlasting hopes arise
Above the ruinable skies,
The eternal God for ever reigns,
And we are safe, for he sustains.
