Praises everywhere sweetly sound

Representative Text

1 Praises everywhere sweetly sound,
Joy victorious here is found,
Raise the melody, let it ring,
Worship the Heav'nly King.

Praises, everywhere we are singing,
Sweet notes ringing, gladness bringing,
Songs from loving hearts ever springing,
Praises to our Lord and King.

2 Praises everywhere, let use raise,
Songs of gratitude, all our days,
O'er the universe, banners fling,
Standards of Christ the King. [Refrain]

3 Praises everywhere, He shall hear,
Christ the conqueror we'll revere,
Love Him, honor Him, gladly sing,
Praise to the children's King. [Refrain]
