1 I’ve in my heart a merry psalm,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord;
Christ made me upright like the palm,
Praise Him, O my soul.
All sin is gone, my soul is free,
For Jesus bled and died for me.

Refrain:
Hallelujah praise the Lord,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord;
Hallelujah praise the Lord,
Praise Him night and day.

2 King David was a happy king,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord;
His praises made the heavens ring,
Praise Him, O my soul.
Salvation filled his mouth with shouts,
He danced in spite of Michal’s pouts. [Refrain]

3 This is the way that Israel went,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord;
Some praised until the earth was rent,
Praise Him, O my soul.
It made the prison quake and ope,
The pris’ners heard, the jailors woke. [Refrain]

4 When Judah was in sore distress,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord;
Before, behind, the foe die press,
Praise Him, O my soul.
Their shouts of praise amidst the fight,
Soon put the alien host to fight. [Refrain]

5 Elizabeth and Mary too
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord;
And Zacharias joined their crew,
Praise Him, O my soul.
John heard the sound, ‘twas music sweet,
And Luke the story did repeat. [Refrain]

6 When round the throne of God we stand,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord;
We’ll be a happy, blood-washed band,
Praise Him, O my soul.
Like thunders loud, and waters’ roar,
Our praise will sound along the shore. [Refrain]
