594. Sing Praise To God Who Reigns Above

1 Sing praise to God who reigns above,
The God of all creation,
The God of pow'r, the God of love,
The God of our salvation;
With healing balm my soul He fills
And ev'ry pain and sorrow stills:
To God all praise and glory!

2 The angel hosts Thy praises sing
Around Thy throne in heaven.
On earth and sea, O mighty King,
All praise to Thee is given.
Let all who 'neath Thy shadow dwell
In hymns of praise Thy wisdom tell:
To God all praise and glory!

3 What God hath wrought to show His might,
He evermore sustaineth.
His eye is o'er us day and night,
His mercy never waneth.
Thro'out His kingdom's wide domain
His works are right, His judgments plain:
To God all praise and glory!

4 I cried to God in my distress,
His mercy heard me calling;
My Savior saw my helplessness
And kept my feet from falling;
For this, Lord, praise and thanks to Thee!
Praise God most high, praise God with me!
To God all praise and glory!

5 Ye, who confess the Savior's name,
To God give praise and glory!
Ye who the Father's might proclaim,
To God give praise and glory!
Let idols under foot be trod!
The Lord is God! The Lord is God!
To God all praise and glory!

6 Thus, all my gladsome way along,
I'll sing aloud Thy praises,
That men may hear the grateful song
My voice unwearied raises;
Be joyful in the Lord, my heart,
Both soul and body, bear your part;
To God all praise and glory!
