Representative Text

Praise ye the Father, let ev’ry nation join to sing;
Praise ye the Father, let ev’ry heart its tribute bring,
King everlasting! The angels magnify Thy name.
King of all glory! The worlds Thy might and pow’r proclaim.
Praise ye the Lord, ev’ry heart break forth and sing,
For He is good unto all, and His mercy is everlasting.
He hath redeemed, and hath made us to be His children,
By His death on the cross He ransom’d the world.
Hallelujah! praise ye the Father.
Glory be to the Father, to the Son and to the Holy Ghost,
We sing glory, we sing glory, unto Christ our Lord and King,
Glory unto Christ our King.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
World without end.
Amen. Amen.
