1 I will praise the Lord today,
For the Lord is good to me;
And his love appears as the sweetest gift,
‘Mid the blessings that I see.

Refrain:
Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth,
Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth,
Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth,
And with my song will I praise him.

2 I will praise the Lord today,
For his name is more than sweet;
And I gather strength for the toils of life
As I worship at his feet. [Refrain]

3 I will praise the Lord today,
For his word is life and love;
And the hope he gives is a blessed hope,
For it lifts my soul above. [Refrain]

4 I will praise the Lord today,
For the Lord has ransomed me;
He has set his seal on this soul of mine,
That his glory I may see. [Refrain]
