Author: Julia H. Johnston Meter: 188.8.131.52 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)
