255. The Living God Be Praised

1 The living God be praised,
who reigns enthroned above,
ancient of everlasting days,
and God of love.
Jehovah, great I Am!
By earth and heaven confessed,
we bow before your holy name,
forever blest.

2 Your spirit still flows free,
high surging where it will:
in prophet's word you spoke of old
and you speak still.
Established is your law,
and changeless it shall stand,
inscribed upon the human heart,
on sea, on land.

3 You have eternal life
implanted in the soul;
your love shall be our strength and stay,
while ages roll.
We praise you, living God!
We praise your holy name;
the first, the last, beyond all thought,
and still the same.
