1 Praise God on the throne of his power,
For great and eternal he reigns!
Praise him from the valleys of earth,
And praise him from mountains and plains.
Praise him who liveth forever,
With glory enthroned in the sky;
Praise him, ye living creation,
While nature’s glad voices reply.
2 Praise God, O ye depths and ye heights!
Praise him, O ye winds of the sea!
Praise him, O ye clouds of the air,
For great and almighty is he. [Refrain]
3 Ye worlds, that, revolving afar,
Are yet but the work of his hands,
Give praise that, pursuing your course,
Ye follow eternal commands. [Refrain]
4 Praise God, O ye children of men,
Ye humble and holy of heart;
Take thou in creation’s great song
The noblest and worthiest part. [Refrain]
5 This earth that is mortal will fail,
But years everlasting are thine!
Praise God for this holiest gift,
This mercy, this blessing divine. [Refrain]Source: Joyful Sound: a collection of new hymns and music with familiar selections #48
