Representative Text

1 Give praise, give praise, for blessings from above,
Give praise, give praise, for countless gifts of love,
For seed and harvest, sun and rain,
For all the year will bring,
Give praise, give praise, glad anthems raise,
Ye children of the King.

2 Give praise, give praise, to God who reigns on high,
Give praise, give praise, adore and magnify,
For He alone creates for man
Each good and lovely thing,
Give praise, give praise, true worship raise,
Ye children of the King.

3 Give praise, give praise, for earthly joys that shine,
Give praise, give praise, for fairer light divine,
A promise of His glory-land,
All mortal splendors bring,
Give praise, give praise, this best of days,
Ye children of the King.
