10072. Give Thanks To God Most High

1 Give thanks to God most high,
The universal Lord;
The sovereign King of kings;
And be His grace adored.
His power and grace
Are still the same;
And let His name
Have endless praise.

2 How mighty is His hand!
What wonders hath He done!
He formed the earth and seas,
And spread the heav’ns alone.
Thy mercy, Lord,
Shall still endure;
And ever sure
Abides Thy Word.

3 His wisdom framed the sun
To crown the day with light;
The moon and twinkling stars
To cheer the darksome night.
His power and grace
Are still the same;
And let His name
Have endless praise.

4 He smote the first-born sons,
The flower of Egypt, dead;
And thence His chosen tribes
With joy and glory led.
Thy mercy, Lord,
Shall still endure;
And ever sure
Abides Thy Word.

5 His power and lifted rod
Cleft the Red Sea in two;
And for His people made
A wondrous passage through.
His power and grace
Are still the same;
And let His name
Have endless praise.

6 But cruel Pharaoh there,
With all his host, He drowned;
And brought His Israel safe
Through a long desert ground.
Thy mercy, Lord,
Shall still endure;
And ever sure
Abides Thy Word.

7 The kings of Canaan fell
Beneath His dreadful hand;
While His own servants took
Possession of their land.
His power and grace
Are still the same;
And let His name
Have endless praise.

8 He saw the nations lie
All perishing in sin,
And pitied the sad state
The ruined world was in.
Thy mercy, Lord,
Shall still endure;
And ever sure
Abides Thy Word.

9 He sent His only Son
To save us from our woe
From Satan, sin, and death,
And every hurtful foe.
His power and grace
Are still the same;
And let His name
Have endless praise.

10 Give thanks aloud to God,
The God the heavenly king;
And let the spacious earth
His works and glories sing.
Thy mercy, Lord,
Shall still endure;
And ever sure
Abides Thy Word.
