Author: Carl P. Daw Jr. Hymnal: Glory to God #356 (2013) Meter: 184.108.40.206 D Hymnal Title: Glory to God First Line: Sing praise to God, whose mighty acts Lyrics: 1 Sing praise to God, whose mighty acts
still strong in memory stand
to give us hope when evil seems
to gain the upper hand.
Give thanks for deeds of steadfast love,
for wonders new and old:
for fire and cloud, for daily food,
for mercies yet untold.
2 Though monuments of evil rise
in marble, gilt, and stone,
time’s search will find their boasts untrue,
their makers’ names unknown.
Mute avenues of ruins will mark
where once proud cities stood,
but from destruction God will save
the faithful, just, and good.
3 Rise up, O God, reclaim the power
usurped by mortal pride;
deflate the hollow pomp of those
whom rank and titles hide.
Let not the needy cry unheard,
the suffering hope in vain;
restore the fallen, bless the meek,
till peace and justice reign.
