528. Sing Praise to God Who Reigns Above

1 Sing praise to God who reigns above,
The God of all creation,
The God of power, the God of love,
The God of our salvation;
With healing balm my soul he fills,
And every faithless murmur stills:
To God all praise and glory.

2 What God’s almighty power has made,
His gracious mercy keeping;
By morning glow or evening shade
His watchful eye ne’er sleeping;
Within the kingdom of his might,
Lo! all is just and all is right:
To God all praise and glory.

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

4 Let all who name Christ's holy name,
Give God all praise and glory;
All you who own his power, proclaim
Aloud the wondrous story!
Cast each false idol from its throne,
The Lord is God, the Lord alone:
To God all praise and glory.
