Representative Text

1 Praise the Lord Jehovah with a joyful song,
Endless alleluiahs unto Him belong.
He is Lord of Lords, and He King of kings,
Unto Him the host in glory sings.
Lift your hearts and voices, saints below,
Tell His mighty marvels, as ye go.
He the wondrous Conqueror who rules on high,
Unto us in Christ, our Lord, has now come night.

Blessing, honor, pow’r and glory,
For Redemption’s wondrous story,
Be to the Lord who liveth,
And full salvation giveth;
Crown Him the King, and your glad tribute bring,
Join, ye ransomed ones, in sweet acclaim.
Praise Him, praise Him, ev’ry nation;
Ev’ry tongue ascribe salvation
Unto the Lord forever,
Jesus who changeth never,
Sing to the King, His goodness proclaim,
Exalt His all-victorious name.

2 Hail to Him who cometh as the Morning Star,
Shining, ever glorious, over lands afar.
Unto all who seek Him, He is life and light,
Praise Him for His mercy and His might.
Trust the great Redeemer crucified;
Hide for safety in His wounded side;
Lift the song of gladness for His matchless love;
Keep your grateful hearts in tune with harps above. [Refrain]

3 Bless the Lord for He is good; His truth endures;
Faithful is the promise which our peace assures.
Blest are they who trust His word, and do His will,
He their expectation will fulfill.
Oh, let all who know Him, tell it out;
Join to send afar the triumph shout.
Praise the King eternal and His name adore,
Worthy is the glorious name forevermore. [Refrain]
