Hymn/Song Information

Praise you the Lord our God to praise my




Praise ye the Lord; our God to praise
my soul her utmost pow'r shall raise,
With private friends, and in the throng
of saints his praise shall be my song.


His works for greatness though renowned,
his wondrous works with ease are found
By those who seek for them aright,
and in the pious search delight.


His works are all of matchless fame,
and universal glory claim;
His truth, confirmed through ages past,
shall to eternal ages last.


By precept he has us enjoined
to keep his wondrous works in mind;
And to posterity record,
that good and gracious is our Lord.


His bounty, like a flowing tide,
has all his servants' wants supplied;
And he will ever keep in mind
his cov'nant with our fathers signed.


At once astonished and o'erjoyed,
they saw his matchless pow'r employed;
Whereby the heathen were suppressed,
and we their heritage possessed.


Just are the dealings of his hands,
immutable are his commands;
By truth and equity sustained,
and for eternal rules ordained.


He set his saints from bondage free,
and then established his decree,
For ever to remain the same;
holy and rev'rend is his Name.


Who wisdom's sacred prize would win,
must with the fear of God begin;
Immortal praise and heavenly skill
have they, who know and do his will.
