Representative Text

1 I’ll praise Thee, Savior, Prince of Peace,
In songs of praise that ne’er shall cease;
While time and life and tho’t endure,
I’ll praise Thee, Savior, evermore.

Chorus:
And above the rest this not shall swell,
This not shall swell, this note shall swell,
And above the rest this not shall swell,
My Jesus hath done all things well.

2 I’ll praise Thee for the crimson flood,
For cleansing in Thy precious blood;
I’ll praise Thee for Thy Spirit’s pow’r,
That fills and keeps me hour by hour. [Chorus]

3 I’ll praise Thee for salvation’s might,
That turns my darkness into light;
That scatters all my gloom and sin,
I’ll praise Thee, O, my Savior King. [Chorus]

4 I’ll praise Thee when ‘tis dark and drear,
‘Mid sorrow’s frowns I will not fear;
In darkest night I’ll raise my song,
And roll the glorious strains along. [Chorus]

5 I’ll praise Thee in a lofty strain,
I’ll praise Thee in a sweet refrain;
I’ll praise Thee more than tongue can tell,
For Thou art doing all things well. [Chorus]

6 I’ll praise Thee with my present breath,
I’ll praise Thee in the hour of death;
I’ll praise Thee as I mount above,
I’ll praise Thee in the realms of love. [Chorus]
