1. Praise the King of Heaven, call upon His name;
Praise Him for His mercy, evermore the same.
Infinite His wisdom, wonderful His might;
Safely He protecteth all who walk aright.
2. Praise the King of Heaven, magnify His grace;
He is bending o’er us, kindness in His face.
Faithful is His mercy, high as Heaven above;
Wider than creation is Jehovah’s love.
3. Praise the King of Heaven; full of pity He—
Like a father, knowing our infirmity.
Fear not to approach Him and His succor claim;
Surely He will aid us, who hath built our frame.
4. Praise the King of Heaven, angels in the height;
All who do His bidding, now with us unite.
Through His great dominion let the anthem roll;
Praise Him now and always; praise Him, every soul.
