Praise the Lord, Each Tribe and Nation

Representative Text

1 Praise the Lord, each tribe and nation,
Praise Him with a joyous heart;
Ye who know His full salvation,
Gather now from ev'ry part;
Let your voices glorify,
In His temple God on high.

2 He’s our God and our Creator,
We, His flock and chosen seed:
He, our Lord and Liberator,
Us from sin and peril freed:
And at last His flock shall rest
In the mansions of the blest.

3 Magnify Him in His portals;
In His courts His deeds proclaim;
Hither come, ye ransomed mortals,
Glorify our Saviour’s Name.
Ever kind and loving, He
Keeps His faith eternally.
