1 Give unto the Lord, O ye mighty,
The praise due His holy name,
Sing unto the Lord with rejoicing,
Who was and is still the same.

Refrain:
O praise Him, the mighty and holy,
O sing of His wonderful grace,
Who reigneth on high in the heavens,
Made bright by His glorious face.

2 Our God will give strength to His people,
And bless them with perfect peace,
His mercy is ever upon us,
His goodness will never cease. [Refrain]

3 Salvation is nigh them that fear Him,
His truth through all ages shall stand,
His righteousness goeth before us,
His glory shall fill the land. [Refrain]
