Lyrics

O sing His praise, who gov­erns earth and sky;
Sing His ten­der mer­cy, ev­er nigh;
Sing of the love that ran­soms man from sin,
Love that con­quered death, our souls to win.

Refrain

Sweet prais­es bring the heav’n­ly King;
To ev­ery na­tion tell His ev­er­last­ing love;
Sweet prais­es bring the heav’n­ly King;
He guides us in His ways,
He sends the sun­ny days;
And ev­ery cloud His will obeys
With bless­ing from above.

O sing His praise, with gra­ti­tude sin­cere;
Tokens of His good­ness thro’ the year;
Sing of the care pro­vi­ding for our needs,
Thro’ the stran­ger-land, He gent­ly leads.

Refrain

O sing His praise; the thank­ful notes pro­long;
Let our lives re-echo ev­ery song;
Let heart and hand the hap­py strain re­peat,
Laying lov­ing ser­vice at His feet.
