Representative Text

1 Praise ye Jehovah, praise the Lord most holy,
Who cheers the contrite, girds with strength the weak;
Praise Him who will with glory crown the lowly,
And with salvation beautify the meek.

2 Praise ye the Lord for all His loving kindness,
And all the tender mercies He hath shown;
Praise Him who pardons all our sin and blindness,
And calls us sons, and takes us for His own.

3 Praise ye Jehovah, source of every blessing;
Before His gifts earth’s richest boons are dim;
Resting in Him, His peace and joy possessing,
All things are ours, for we have all in Him.

4 Praise ye the Father, God the Lor, who gave us,
With full and perfect love, His only Son;
Praise ye the Son who died Himself to save us;
Praise ye the Spirit, praise the Three in One!

Campbell, Margaret, Lady Cockburn, née Malcolm, eldest daughter of Sir John Malcolm, G.C.B., married, June 20, 1827, to Sir Alexander Thomas Cockburn-Campbell, Bart, (one of the founders of the Plymouth Brethren in England), and died at Alphington, near Exeter, Feb. 6, 1811. Her hymns were printed in lithograph from her manuscript for private circulation. In the Plymouth Brethren Psalms & Hymns, Lond., Walther, 1842, some of these hymns were given, and thus came into common use. The best known is, "Praise ye Jehovah, praise the Lord most holy." --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
