60. We'll Praise the Lord

1 We'll praise the Lord for He is great,
And in His presence angels wait;
All heaven is swelling with His praise,
Shall we not, too, our anthems raise?

Refrain:
O we will praise Him,
O we will praise Him,
O we will praise His holy name!
O we will praise Him,
O we will praise Him,
O we will praise His holy name!

2 We'll praise the Lord for He is wise:
His wisdom shines through all the skies;
The earth He measures with a span,
And crowns us with His image, man. [Refrain]

3 We'll praise the Lord for He is just,
And in Him we may ever trust;
Princes and kings may turn aside,
But God by right will e'er abide. [Refrain]

4 We'll praise the Lord for He is true:
His word the same all ages through;
Earth, sea and sky may pass away,
But firm God's truth will ever stay. [Refrain]

5 O praise Him for His name is love,
And from His glorious throne above
He bends to welcome our weak praise:
Shall we not, then, our anthem raise? [Refrain]

Amen.
