Representative Text

1. Praise ye the Lord! let the glad carols ring!
Sweetest incense of praise while we worship the King.
Praise ye his Name and his goodness adore,
Let us sing and rejoice evermore.

Hallelujah to him who is Lord over all,
Let his glorious praise from rejoicing lips fall;
Hallelujah! proclaim he is coming again,
He is coming in glory to reign.

2. Praise ye the Lord! while the firmament high,
Wondrous work of his hand, echoes back the reply.
Let his great Name from rejoicing lips fall,
Blessed Saviour and Master of all. [Chorus]

3. Praise ye the Lord! let the grand anthem swell
Like the sound of the sea, all his glory to tell.
Honor his Name, laud and worship the King,
While the joy bells of victory ring. [Chorus]
