Representative Text

1 Give praise, give praise to God, creation’s King,
With songs of gladness let the wide world ring,
While earth and sky their Maker’s will obey,
Give praise, give praise to God this holy day.

Refrain:
Let the Name of our Creator from a thousand voices ring,
Let earth and sky together join, in tribute to our King,
For from Him uncounted blessings fall upon our earthly way,
Then sing His Name, give glad acclaim,
Give praise this holy day.

2 Give praise, give praise to Him whose sov’reign Word
By sun and stars in highest heav’n is heard,
He speaks, and flowers bloom in fair array,
Give praise, give praise to God this holy day. [Refrain]

3 Give praise, give praise to God at whose command
The mighty forests clad in verdure stand,
The fields their robes of living green display,
Give praise, give praise to God this holy day. [Refrain]
