1 We bless Thy Name, O Lord,
Thy goodness we record,
We tell Thy great and wondrous love,
We publish it abroad.
We look to Thee on high,
WE praise and glorify,
For only Thou art Ruler, over earth and sky.
For Thine is the Kingdom, the power, the glory,
For ever and ever, Thy praises we will sing,
Yes, Thine is the Kingdom, the power, the glory,
For Thou art Almighty, and Thou art our King.
2 Thy Word is law divine,
In Thee all laws combine,
For Thee, the barren fields grow green,
The skies with sunlight shine,
Thy wish is Nature’s will,
Thy plan she must fulfill,
Creation proves the marvels of her Maker’s skill. [Refrain]
3 To Thee, O Lord, most high,
Ascends the joyous cry,
A thousand hills take up the song,
A thousand vales reply,
Dominion wide and broad,
O’er lands in glad accord,
Be unto Thee forevermore,
Almighty Lord. [Refrain]
