Representative Text

1 Praise the Lord, the Rock of Ages, come before him with a song,
While the story of his goodness we repeat;
Praise the Lord, the King of Glory, with the everlasting throng
Who are shouting, Hallelujah! at his feet.

O praise his name, his holy name,
O come with joyful, joyful song; his wondrous love proclaim;
O praise his name, his holy name;
Rejoice, rejoice and sing with loud acclaim.

2 Praise the Lord, whose loving kindness has redeemed us from the fall,
And has bought for us a pardon full and free;
Praise the Lord that all are welcome to accept the gracious call,
Ho, ye weary, heavy-laden, come to me. [Refrain]

3 Praise the Lord that in his kingdom there are mansions bright and fair,
Where the streams of life and joy in beauty glide;
Praise the Lord that all the faithful by and by shall enter there,
And forever in his tender love abide. [Refrain]
