154. Songs Of Immortal Praise Belong

1 Songs of immortal praise belong
To my almighty God:
He hath my heart, and He my tongue,
To spread His name abroad,
To spread His name abroad.

2 How great the works His hands hath wrought,
How glorious in our sight!
And men in ev'ry age have sought
His wonders with delight,
His wonders with delight.

3 How most exact is nature's frame,
Th'eternal God, how wise!
His counsels never change the scheme
That His first tho'ts devise,
That His first tho'ts devise.

4 When He thro' Christ redeemed our race,
He fixed His cov'nant sure;
His precious promises of grace
To endless years endure,
To endless years endure.

5 Both time and nature, earth and skies,
His heav'nly skill proclaim;
But they alone are truly wise
Who know in Christ His name,
Who know in Christ His name.
