482. O Praise The Lord! His Name Extol

1 O praise the Lord! His name extol,
The God of skill and might,
Who formed my body, breathed my soul
And gave me life and light--
My Father, whose paternal care,
To me from childhood shown,
Exceeds my effort to declare,
Exceeds what I have known.

2 O praise the Lord! Adore His grace,
My God, my only trust,
The Son, who, loving our lost race,
United with our dust--
My Savior, who for me has giv'n
His all-atoning blood
To raise me up from earth to heav'n,
From wretchedness to God.

3 O praise the Lord, the Holy One,
My God, who seals my peace,
Sent by the Father and the Son
To guide me home to bliss--
The Comforter, whose quick'ning pow'r
Assists me day by day,
Whose counsels, in the darkest hour,
My trembling spirit stay.
