Representative Text

1 Praise ye His Holy Name
The Lord Jehovah dwelling in the light;
His wondrous works proclaim,
His wisdom and His boundless might.

Praise Him
Praise the Lord, Jehovah,
All the earth shall praise Him,
Praise Him
O sing His praise whose name is love,
Exalt and praise Him
Praise Him ever glorious, over all victorious,
Praise Him,
The King of kings who reigns above.

2 Come to His Courts with joy,
Let alleluias rise to yonder throne;
Your noblest song employ,
To make His praise and glory known. [Refrain]

3 Here let the anthem ring,
Where He is known to be the only God;
And then proclaim Him King,
O’er all the waiting earth abroad. [Refrain]

4 Join all the hosts on high
Who praise Jehovah and His name adore;
And “Holy, Holy” cry,
In sweet accord forevermore. [Refrain]
