In Hymns Of Praise

Representative Text

1 In hymns of praise your voices raise
To Him who reigns on high;
Whose counsels keep the mighty deep,
Who ruleth earth and sky.

Refrain:
Exalt His name in loud acclaim!
His mighty power adore!
And humbly bow before Him now,
Our king forevermore.

2 Beneath His hand, at His command,
The shining planets move;
To all below they daily show
His wisdom and His love. [Refrain]

3 The little flower that lasts an hour,
The sparrow in its fall;
They, too, shall share His tender care,
He made and loves them all. [Refrain]

4 Then sing again in lofty strain
To Him who dwells on high;
To prayers you raise, and songs of praise,
He sweetly will reply. [Refrain]
