Sing His Praise

Representative Text

1 Let us praise the Lord, for His smiles that beam
O’er our happy hearts;
For the joy and bliss, like a flowing stream,
He to us imparts.

Praise Him, every nation,
Praise Him, saints above,
Praise Him, every creature
For His mighty love.

2 I will praise the Lord, for His peace is mine;
For His saints in light;
For the fellowship, and the love divine

3 For eternal life and salvation great
Thankful let us be;
For the strength He gives when on Him we wait,
And for victory. [Refrain]

4 For redeeming grace and His holiness
Praises let us bring;
Praise the Lord for all He bestows on us,
Yea, for everything. [Refrain]
