And all His wonders sing.

O praise the Lord, His goodness own;

His mercy brings salvation down;
O praise the Lord, my soul!

2 How dark this heart of sin would be,
Without one cheering ray!
But Jesus comes, the Star of Hope,
And brings celestial day. [Refrain]

3 O breathe Thy holy Gift again,
Come shed Thy love divine;
We long to praise Thee more and more,
And in Thy glory shine. [Refrain]
