1 Praise the Lord,
praise the Lord!
He with you deals bounteously.
Highly favored church of Jesus,
he chose you through mercy free
to show forth his matchless praises
and rich fruit, blessed for the Master's use,
to produce,
to produce.

2 Gracious Lord,
gracious Lord,
blessed is our lot indeed
in your ransomed congregation;
here we on your merits feed,
and the well-springs of salvation,
all the needy to revive and cheer,
stream forth here,
forth here.

3 We entreat,
we entreat,
Lord, lift up your countenance
on your ransomed congregations;
grace to ev'ry soul dispense.
May we in our situations
daily in your great salvation share.
Hear our prayer,
hear our prayer.
