#13 Praise Ye the Lord, The Almighty

Standard

 (Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Praise ye 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!

2

Praise ye the Lord, who o’er all things so wondrously reigneth,

Shelters thee under His wings, yea so gently sustaineth!

Hast thou not seen How thy desires e’er have been

Granted in what He ordaineth?

3

Praise ye the Lord, who with marvelous wisdom hath made thee,

Decked thee with health, and with loving hand guided and stayed thee;

How oft in grief Hath not He brought thee relief,

Spreading His wings for to shade thee!

4

Praise ye the Lord! O let all that is in me adore Him!

All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before Him!

Let the Amen Sound from His people again;

Gladly for aye we adore Him.
