Representative Text

1 Praise ye Jehovah! come with songs before Him,
Maker, Redeemer, might Lord of all;
While all the angels joyfully adore Him,
Let all the world before His foot stool fall.

Praise the Lord, all ye nations;
Praise the Lord, all ye people;
Come before His presence with a shout and song;
Spread wide the story, give Him all the glory;
He hath redeemed us, we to Him belong.

2 Winds of the valley, tempests of the mountain,
Thunders above us—voices of His will—
Billows of ocean, waters of the fountain,
Move at His word and all their works fulfill. [Refrain]

3 Great is Jehovah! heav’n and earth will praise Him,
God everlasting, evermore the same;
This be the song our hearts shall ever raise Him:
Maker and Saviour, glory to His name! [Refrain]
