Great is the Lord, 'tis good to praise

Tune: DEVIZES (Tucker)
Published in 17 hymnals

Representative Text

1. Great is the Lord; ’tis good to praise
His high and holy name.
Well may the Saints in latter days
His wondrous love proclaim.

2. The Comforter is sent again,
His pow’r the Church attends,
And with the faithful will remain
Till Jesus Christ descends.

3. We’ll praise him for a prophet’s voice,
His people’s steps to guide;
In this we do and will rejoice,
Tho all the world deride.

4. To praise him let us all engage,
For unto us is giv’n
To live in this momentous age
And share the light of heav’n.
