Representative Text

1 Praise to God; Oh! let us raise
From our hearts a song of praise;
Of that goodness let us sing
Whence our lives and blessings spring.

2 Praise to Him who made the light,
Praise to Him to gave us sight!
Praise to Him who formed the ear!
He our humble praise will hear.

3 Praise Him for our happy hours;
Praise Him for our varied powers;
For these thoughts that soar above;
For these hearts He made for love.

4 For the voice He placed within,
Bearing witness when we sin;
Praise to Him whose tender care
Keeps the watchful guardian there!

5 Praise the mercy that did send
Jesus for our guide and friend:
Praise Him, every heart and voice,
Him who makes the world rejoice.
