O praise him, O praise him

Representative Text

1 Oh, praise him! oh, praise him!
Praise him, ye children of Zion,
Eternal King, Eternal King! Eternal King!
Praise him from the height;
Praise him, stars of light;
Praise him, golden beams of day,
Turning shadows far away,
Praise God, ye children of Zion,
Praise God, eternal King.
Not the shining host alone,
Circling 'round the great white throne,
But his earthly children sing,
Glory to their blessed King,
And the grateful notes they raise,
Help to swell his endless praise,
Meet the songs of joy and love,
Ringing from the harps above.

2 Oh, praise him! oh, praise him!
Praise him, ye children of Zion,
Eternal King, Eternal King! Eternal King!
Praise him, angel band,
Who in glory stand;
Seraphs bright, and cherubim,
Raise the everlasting hymn,
Praise God, ye children of Zion,
Praise God, eternal King.
