Lyrics

Give thanks and praise to God above,
For everlasting is His love;
Praise Him, ye saints, your Savior praise,
Forever good in all His ways.

Refrain

His tender mercy lasts for aye,
His tender mercy lasts for aye;
His tender mercy, tender mercy,
Tender mercy lasts for aye.

Let all His servants tell abroad
The never failing grace of God;
Let all who fear Jehovah’s name
His everlasting love proclaim.

Refrain

In bondage of distress and grief
To God I cried, and sought relief;
In wondrous love He heard my plea
And set my soul at liberty.
