Hymn/Song Information

The King O lord with songs of praise




The King, O lord, with songs of praise
shall in thy strength rejoice;
With thy salvation crowned, shall raise
to heav'n his cheerful voice.


For thou, what'er his lips request,
not only didst impart;
But hast with thy acceptance blest
the wishes of his heart.


Thy goodness and thy tender care
have all his hopes outgone;
A crown of gold thou mad'st him wear<
and sett'st it firmly on.


He prayed for life, and thou, O Lord,
didst his short span extend;
And graciously to him afford
a life that ne'er shall end.


Thy sure defense through nations round
has spread his glorious name;
And his successful actions crowned
with majesty and fame.


Eternal blessings thou bestow'st,
and mak'st his joys increase;
Whilst thou to him unclouded show'st
the brightness of thy face.
