1 Sing unto the Lord, his praises loud proclaim,
his praises loud proclaim;
In jubilant song oh, praise his holy name
Oh! praise his holy name.
Sing with hearts and voices praises to our King,
Over hills and valleys let the echoes ring,
A wonderful Savior,
A wonderful Savior,
Christ,—mighty Redeemer,—King Jesus,—our Lord.

Chorus:
Praise his name, wonderful name.
Over death triumphant,—
Praise his holy name.
Love, gave Jesus—precious flame,—
And this love is still the same;
Swell the song—in loud acclaim,
Praise his name.

2 Sing unto the Lord, his praises loud proclaim,
his praises loud proclaim;
In jubilant song oh, praise his holy name
Oh! praise his holy name.
Down from glory’s mansions unto earth he came,
Bringing joy and peace to all who own his name.
A wonderful Savior,
A wonderful Savior,
Christ,—mighty Redeemer,—King Jesus,—our Lord. [Chorus]

3 Sing unto the Lord, his praises loud proclaim,
his praises loud proclaim;
In jubilant song oh, praise his holy name
Oh! praise his holy name.
Rest for weary ones, and comfort in distress;
Hope, and love and life, when we, his name confess.
A wonderful Savior,
A wonderful Savior,
Christ,—mighty Redeemer,—King Jesus,—our Lord. [Chorus]

4 Sing unto the Lord, his praises loud proclaim,
his praises loud proclaim;
In jubilant song oh, praise his holy name
Oh! praise his holy name.
With a father’s tender love our lives are bound,
From the ills of life his sheltering arms surround.
A wonderful Savior,
A wonderful Savior,
Christ,—mighty Redeemer,—King Jesus,—our Lord. [Chorus]

5 Sing unto the Lord, his praises loud proclaim,
his praises loud proclaim;
In jubilant song oh, praise his holy name
Oh! praise his holy name.
Soon, soon time shall cease, then with the angel-throng,—
“Glory to the Lamb” will ever be our song.
A wonderful Savior,
A wonderful Savior,
Christ,—mighty Redeemer,—King Jesus,—our Lord. [Chorus]
