Hymn/Song Information

O praise our great and gracious Lord




O praise our great
and gracious Lord,
And call upon His Name;
To strains of joy tune every chord,
His mighty acts proclaim;
Tell how He led His chosen race
To Canaanís promised land;
Tell how His covenant of grace
Unchanged shall ever stand.


He gave the shadowing
cloud by day,
The moving fire by night;
To guide His Israel on their way,
He made their darkness light;
And have we not a sure retreat,
A Savior ever nigh,
The same clear light
to guide our feet,
The Dayspring from on high?


We, too, have manna from above,
The Bread that came from Heavín;
To us the same kind hand of love
Hath living waters givín;
A Rock have we,
from whence the spring
In rich abundance flows;
The Rock is Christ,
our Priest, our King,
Who life and health bestows.


O may we praise
this blessŤd Food,
And trust our heavenly Guide;
So shall we find deathís fearful flood
Serene as Jordanís tide,
And safely reach that happy shore,
The land of peace and rest,
Where angels worship and adore
In Godís own presence blest.

O may we prize
this blessŤd Food,
And trust our heavenly Guide;
So shall we find deathís fearful flood
Serene as Jordanís tide,
And safely reach that happy shore,
The land of peace and rest,
Where angels worship and adore
In Godís own presence blest.
