1 Bless the Lord! praise His name! hallelujah!
In hosannah's your glad voices raise;
"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise."

Chorus:
Praise the Lord! Praise the lord!
"Let saints joyful be," hallelujah!
"Let them shout from the tops of the mountain,"
"Let the dwellers of the rocks" praise the Lord!

2 "He hath raised up a mighty salvation,"
And the tidings abroad we proclaim;
He hath given His Son to redeem us,
Bless the Lord! O ye saints, praise His name! [Chorus]

3 Strength and grace, day by day, hallelujah!
Doth He give while in Jesus we trust;
"He regardeth our frame," in His mercy,
"He remembreth that we are but dust." [Chorus]

4 Bless the Lord, for his goodness remaineth
Thro' eternity's ages the same!
"For His mercy endureth forever,"
Bless the Lord! O ye saints, praise His name! [Chorus]
