1 Praise the Lord in song today,
In carols exultant and sweet;
Come within his holy temple,
Round his altar meet.
With the saints and angels offer
Tributes of homage and love;
Praise him with a joyful song,
Praise our Redeemer above.

Refrain:
Praise him, praise him,
Let the chorus ring!
Praise him, praise him,
All with gladness sing;
Praise him, praise him,
Joyful anthems bring!
Praise him, praise him,
Praise our Savior and our King.

2 Praise the Lord for ev’ry gift
He sends to his people below;
Offer thanks for all his blessings
That his hands bestow.
Day by day his mercy lead us,
Safely we go on our way;
Praise him with a joyful song,
Praise our Redeemer today. [Refrain]

3 Praise the Lord with heart and soul,
Oh, worship and honor his name;
Unto ev’ry generation
Is his love the same.
Ruler, Shepherd, Friend and Brother,
Give him all glory and love,
Praise him with a joyful song,
Praise our Redeemer above. [Refrain]
