Representative Text

1 Praise the Saviour, O, ye people!
Praise and bless His holy name;
Praise and worship Him; children, worship Him,
For a child from heav’n He came;
Praise Him from the hills and mountains,
From the vales and cities all;
Hail Him King of earth and heaven,
Who was once a child, so small;
Hail Him King of earth and heaven,
Who was once a child, so small.

Refrain:
Praise Him in the sanctuary;
Let the children swell the strain,
And at morn, and noon and even,
Echo still the sweet refrain;
And at morn, and noon and even,
Echo still the sweet refrain.

2 Praise Him for His mighty actions;
Praise Him for His tenderness,
When He lovingley held the little ones
In His arms to save and bless;
Praise Him, all ye wise and noble,
Men and maidens, old and young;
Let redeeming love and mercy
Be the theme of ev’ry tongue;
Let redeeming love and mercy
Be the theme of ev’ry tongue. [Refrain]
