O Lord, Thou Art My God and King

Representative Text

1 O Lord, thou art my God and King;
thee will I magnify and praise:
I will thee bless, and gladly sing
unto thy holy name always.

2 Each day I rise I will thee bless,
and praise thy name time without end:
Much to be praised, and great God is;
his greatness none can comprehend.

3 Race shall thy works praise unto race,
the mighty acts show done by thee;
I will speak of the glorious grace
and honour of thy majesty.

4 Thy wondrous works I will record:
by men the might shall be extolled
of all thy dreadful acts, O Lord:
and I thy greatness will unfold.
