45. Sing Praise to God Who Reigns Above

1 Sing praise to God who reigns above,
The God of all creation,
The God of pow'r, the God of love,
The God of our salvation;
With healing balm my soul He fills,
And ev'ry faithless murmur stills:
To God all praise and glory.

2 What God's almighty pow'r hath made
His gracious mercy keepeth;
By morning glow or evening shade
His watchful eye ne'er sleepeth;
Within the kingdom of His might,
Lo! all is just and all is right:
To God all praise and glory.

3 The Lord is never far away,
But, through all grief distressing,
An ever-present help and stay,
Our peace, and joy and blessing;
As with a mother's tender hand,
He leads His own, His chosen band:
To God all praise and glory.

4 Thus all my gladsome way along,
I sing aloud Thy praises,
That men may hear the grateful song
My voice unwearied raises,
Be joyful in the Lord, my heart,
Both soul and body bear your part:
To God all praise and glory.

Amen.
