Let us join to praise our Maker

Let us join to praise our Maker

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Let us join to praise our Maker,
Let us worship him our King;
And with angels be partaker,
And glad songs of praises sing.
See the wonders he has wrought!
His grace exceeds ev'ry thought.

2 Praise the Father who esteem'd us,
Who is ever kind and good;
Praise the Son who hath redeem'd us,
Be the shedding of his blood:
By his blessed Spirit's aid,
Heirs of heaven we are made.

3 Let us join with ev'ry nation,
And with all who praise the Lord;
Thank the Lord for our salvation,
And the knowledge of his word:
For the word of life and peace,
That of joy and happiness.

4 Praise the Lord for ev'ry blessing,
Which we constantly receive:
Grace and love is never missing:
Let us praise him while we live:
Worthless creatures as we are,
Yet the objects of his care.

5 Numberless are all his graces,
More than we can ever know;
Should we joint to sing his praises,
Here with all on earth below:
All would fail to speak his worth,
Or to set his praises forth.

6 Praises be to God for ever,
Praise him all ye hosts above!
Grace and mercy faileth never:
With our God, the God of love.
Glory, honour, praise and pow'r,
Be to God for evermore.
