Representative Text

1 We praise Thee, O God; in Thy name we rejoice,
We worship before Thee with the harp and the voice;
For favors unnumbered sweet anthems we sing,
For bounties unmeasured glad off’rings we bring;
Thou Father, all gracious, who heedest our call,
Thou King of all kindness, Thou Ruler of all.
We praise Thee, O God, we praise Thee, O God.

2 We praise Thee, O God, for the gifts of Thy hand,
So free and so precious over all this fair land;
Thou givest the sunshine, Thou sendest the rain,
Thou gladden’st the pasture, Thou ripen’st the grain;
The harvest Thou bringest in billows of gold,
The glad year Thou crownest with goodness untold.
We praise Thee, O God, we praise Thee, O God.

3 We praise Thee, O God, for the light of Thy word,
The message of mercy we in gladness have heard;
For Jesus, Thy Son, who for sinful man came,
For joys of salvation thru faith in His name;
For strength in the conflict victorious to be,
For hope of the glory of heaven with Thee.
We praise Thee, O God, we praise Thee, O God.
