612. Praise to God, Immortal Praise

1 Praise to God, immortal praise,
For the love that crowns our days.
Bounteous Source of ev'ry joy,
Let your praise our tongues employ.
All to you, our God, we owe,
Source whence all our blessings flow.

2 All the plenty summer pours,
Autumn's rich, o'erflowing stores,
Flocks that whiten all the plain,
Yellow sheaves of ripened grain --
Lord, for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.

3 Peace, prosperity, and health,
Private bliss and public wealth,
Knowledge with its gladd'ning streams,
True religion's holier beams --
Lord, for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.

4 As your prosp'ring hand has blest,
May we give you of our best
And by deeds of kindly love
For your mercies grateful prove,
Singing thus through all our days:
"Praise to God, immortal praise."
