1 Sing to the great Jehovah's praise!
All praise to Him belongs;
Who kindly lengthens out our days,
Demands our choicest songs.

2 His providence hath brought us through
Another various year;
We all with vows and anthems new
Before our God appear.

3 Father, Thy mercies past we own,
Thy still continued care;
To Thee presenting, through Thy Son,
Whate'er we have or are.

4 Our lips and lives shall gladly show
The wonders of Thy love,
While on in Jesus' steps we go
To see Thy face above.

5 Our residue of days or hours
Thine, wholly Thine, shall be,
And all our consecrated powers
A sacrifice to Thee:

6 Till Jesus in the clouds appear
To saints on earth forgiven,
And bring the grand sabbatic year
The Jubilee of heaven.
