1 Blessed be He, the God of our salvation,
Sing unto Him, ye kingdoms of the earth,
O praise Him!
He giveth strength and pow’r unto His people,
Wisdom is His in whom it hath its birth.

Refrain:
Hail Him, Creator, hail Him the King!
Now to His courts an off’ring bring,
Trust Him forever through evil days,
His hand shall guide thee through life’s devious ways.

2 He gives His word and armies flee before Him,
His chariots rise upon the heavens high,
O praise Him!
All ye His saints rejoice with joy and gladness,
His ear is tuned to hear thy faintest cry. [Refrain]

3 He lifts His hand and silence reigns before Him,
He speaks and earth is shaken by His voice,
O praise Him!
Ye who are His, for ye He shall deliver;
His whisper bids thy trembling soul rejoice. [Refrain]
