Representative Text

1 Praise the Lord, whose love befriending us,
Daily mercies new is sending us;
Praise Him with delight, whose saving might
Will guide our steps aright.

O praise the Lord, whose gifts outpoured,
Have crowned our days and cheered our ways;
O praise the Lord! Our hearts record
Sweet tokens of His love,
With blessings from above.

2 When we pray our Father hearing us,
Sends a promise sweetly cheering us;
For He knows our needs and onward leads,
His grace all thought exceeds. [Refrain]

3 Praise the Lord, the King all-glorious,
Over sin and death victorious;
While His mercies throng, ring out a song,
A carol loud and strong. [Refrain]
