Praise to thee, thou great creator

Representative Text

1 Praise to thee, our great Creator,
Praise be thine from every tongue;
Join, my soul, with every creature,
Join the universal song.

Praise him for his mercy,
Praise him every day;
For his boundless goodness,
Ever praise and pray.

2 Father, source of all compassion,
Free, unbounded love is thine;
Hail the God of our salvation,
Praise him for his love divine. [Refrain]

3 Joyfully on earth adore him,
Till in heaven our song we raise;
There enraptured fall before him,
Lost in wonder, love and praise. [Refrain]
