6. Sing Praise to God Who Reigns Above

1 Sing praise to God who reigns above,
the God of all creation,
the God of power, the God of love,
the God of our salvation.
With healing balm my soul is filled
and every faithless murmur stilled:
to God all praise and glory!

2 Our God is never far away,
but through all grief distressing,
an ever present help and stay,
our peace and joy and blessing.
As with a mother's tender hand
God gently leads the chosen band;
to God all praise and glory!

3 Then all my gladsome way along
I sing aloud your praises
that all may hear the grateful song
my voice unwearied raises.
Be joyful in the Lord, my heart,
both soul and body take your part;
to God all praise and glory!

4 Let all who name Christ's holy name
give God all praise and glory;
let all who own God's power proclaim
around the wondrous story!
Cast each false idol from its throne,
for Christ is Lord, and Christ alone;
to God all praise and glory!
