Representative Text

1 Praise the Lord forever, tell his love to men,
Sing, O earth, his glory, swell the glad refrain;
Once for sin he suffered, life-blood freely gave,
Yet today he lives the lost of earth to save.

Refrain:
Praise his holy name,
Praise his holy name,
Praise his holy name,
Praise his holy name,
Praise the Saviour’s name.

2 Praise him for his goodness, let the chorus ring,
By a life of service crown him Prince and King;
He will keep his children free from sin and woe,
He will guide them safely ev’rywhere they go. [Refrain]

3 Praise the Lord with gladness, shout aloud for joy,
Telling of his mercies should each tongue employ;
He hath borne the burden, carried ev’ry sin,
That a rest eternal all his loved might win. [Refrain]
