Representative Text

1 Sing a song of gladness to the Lord Most High;
He whose pow’r the world displays,
He who made the wonders of the earth and sky,—
Sing to him a song of praise.

Refrain:
Praise the great Creator, sing unto his name,
Ev’ry voice the anthem raise;
All his precepts sure will thro’ time endure;
Sing to him a song of praise.

2 Lift your hearts and voices in triumphant song,
Honor him thro’ all our days;
Power and dominion unto him belong,—
Sing to him a song of praise. [Refrain]

3 Glory everlasting to our Lord above,
For the wisdom of his ways;
Consecrate anew to him our faith and love,—
Sing to him a song of praise. [Refrain]
