Lyrics

I will praise the name of Christ, my Savior,
Who died that I might ever live;
Glory honor, laud and adoration,
With heart and voice to Him I’ll give.

Refrain

I will sing His praises, sing grateful praises,
Till earthly life for me is o’er;
Then with shining angels, and ransomed spirits,
I’ll sing His praise forevermore.

Though my soul must pass through fiery trials,
The Lord will be my strength and stay;
He has said He never will forsake me,
I’ll sing His praises day by day.

Refrain

Do not weep for me, when I must leave you,
My Lord upholds me by His grace;
In the happy home prepared in glory,
I’ll praise my Savior face to face.

Refrain

That will be a holy, happy meeting,
When we, from sin and sorrow free,
Shall be crowned by life by our Redeemer,
To sing His praise eternally.
