Praise the Lord, his power confess

Full Text

1 Praise the Lord—His power confess;
Praise Him in His holiness;
Praise Him as the theme inspires,
Praise Him as His fame requires.

Spread its loudest notes around;
Let the harp unite in praise,
With the sacred minstrel’s lays.

God, the Lord of righteousness;

Of the great Jehovah’s name.
All who dwell beneath His light,
In His praise, your hearts unite,
While the stream of song is poured,
Praise and magnify the Lord.
