16. 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 He fills,
And every faithless murmur stills:
To God all praise and glory.

2. What God's almighty power hath made,
His gracious mercy keepeth;
By morning glow or evening shade
His watchful eye ne'er sleepeth;
Within the kingdom of His might,
Lo! all is just and all is right:
To God all praise and glory.

3. Then all my gladsome way along,
I 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.

4. O ye who name Christ's holy name,
Give God all praise and glory;
All ye who own His power, proclaim
Aloud the wondrous story!
Cast each false idol from His throne,
The Lord is God, and He alone:
To God all praise and glory.
