God's Praise Book

Author: Julia H. Johnston Meter: Appears in 2 hymnals First Line: God has a praise book, a wonderful praise book Lyrics: 1 God has a praise book, a wonderful praise book, Full of thanksgivings and jubilant song; Hillside and valley and beautiful blossom, Echo His praises, and glad notes prolong. 2 Trees that are fruitful, each one in his season, Fertile green pastures, where still waters flow, Tell of His goodness, and show forth His glory, Ever proclaiming His mercy below. 3 Serve Him with gladness, all lands and all nations, Come with a song to His presence today, Enter these portals with fervent rejoicing; He is the Lord, who endureth alway. 4 Praise ye Jehovah, oh praise Him, ye people; Sing, for His merciful kindness is great; He is the Lord, and His truth is forever; Come to His courts, and in gratitude wait. Used With Tune: PACIFIC PALISADES Text Sources: Bible Study Songs, by Bertha F. Vella and Daniel. B. Towner (Boston: The Pilgrim Press, 1899)

Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying, Earth has no sorrow that heav'n cannot cure. 3 Here see the Bread of Life: see waters flowing Forth from the throne of God, pure from above; Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing Earth has no sorrow but heav'n can remove.
