PRAISE HIM, PRAISE HIM!

[Verse 1]
Praise Him, praise Him!
Jesus, our blesséd Redeemer;
Sing, O earth, His wonderful love proclaim!
Hail Him, hail Him! Highest archangels in glory,
Strength and honour give to His holy name.
Like a shepherd, Jesus will guard His children,
In His arms He carries them all day long;
O ye saints that dwell in the mountains of Zion,
Praise Him, praise Him! Ever in joyful song.

[Verse 2]
Praise Him, praise Him!
Jesus, our blesséd Redeemer;
For our sins He suffered and bled and died.
He, our Rock, our hope of eternal salvation,
Hail Him, hail Him! Jesus the Crucified.
Loving Saviour, meekly enduring sorrow,
Crowned with thorns that cruelly pierced His brow;
Once for us rejected, despised, and forsaken,
Prince of glory, ever triumphant now.

[Verse 3]
Praise Him, praise Him!
Jesus, our blesséd Redeemer;
Heav’nly portals loud with Hosannas ring!
Jesus, Saviour, reigneth for ever and ever,
Crown Him, crown Him! Prophet and Priest and King!
Death is vanquished, tell it with joy, ye faithful!
Where is now thy victory, boasting grave?
Jesus lives, no longer thy portals are cheerless;
Jesus lives, the mighty and strong to save.

PRAISE, MY SOUL, THE KING OF HEAVEN

[Verse 1]
Praise, my soul, the King of Heaven;
To His feet thy tribute bring.
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
Who like thee His praise should sing

Praise Him, praise Him,
Praise the everlasting King.

[Verse 2]
Praise Him for His grace and favor
To our fathers in distress;
Praise Him still the same forever,
Slow to chide, and swift to bless.

Praise Him, praise Him,
Glorious in His faithfulness.

[Verse 3]
Father-like He tends and spares us,
Well our feeble frame He knows;
In His hands He gently bears us,
Rescues us from all our foes.

Praise Him, praise Him,
Widely as His mercy flows.

[Verse 4]
Angels in the height adore HIm
Ye behold Him face to face;
Sun and moon, bow down before Him;
Dwellers all in time and space,

Praise Him, praise Him,
Praise with us the God of grace.

PRAISE TO THE LORD THE ALMIGHTY

[Verse 1]
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty,
the King of creation!
O my soul praise Him,
for He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear,
Now to His temple draw near;
Join me in glad adoration!

[Verse 2]
Praise to the Lord,
Who o’er all things
so wondrously reigneth,
Shelters thee under His wings,
yes, so gently sustaineth!
Hast thou not seen
How all thy longings have been
Granted in what He ordaineth?

[Verse 3]
Praise to the Lord,
Who doth prosper thy work
and defend thee;
Surely His goodness and mercy
here daily attend thee.
Ponder anew
What the Almighty can do,
If with His love He befriend thee.

[Verse 4]
Praise to the Lord!
O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath,
come now with praise before Him.
Let the Amen
Sound from His people again:
Gladly for aye we adore Him.
