Representative Text

1 O praise the Lord, sing to His name;
Let ev’ry nation His glory proclaim;
Gracious and kind, loving and true,
Praise ye the Lord, for He careth for you.

O praise the Lord,
O praise the Lord,
Gracious and kind, loving and true,
Praise ye the Lord, for He careth for you.

2 O praise the Lord, gladly adore
Him, the Omnipotent God, evermore;
Kneel at His feet—pardon is there;
Tell Him your burden, your sorrow and care. [Refrain]

3 O praise the Lord, children and men,
Give Him your worship again and again;
Morning and night, earnestly raise
Hymns of thanksgiving and anthems of praise. [Refrain]
