62. We Praise Thee, O God, Our Redeemer

1 We praise thee, O God, our Redeemer, Creator;
in grateful devotion our tribute we bring.
We lay it before thee, we kneel and adore thee,
we bless thy holy name, glad praises we sing.

2 We worship thee, God of the ages, we bless thee;
through life's storm and tempest our guide thou hast been.
When perils o'ertake us, escape thou wilt make us,
and with thy help, O Lord, life's battles we win.

3 With voices united our praises we offer,
and gladly our song of true worship we raise;
our sins now confessing, we pray for thy blessing;
to thee, our great Redeemer, ever be praise.
