14. 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 faithless murmur stills:
To God all praise and glory.

2 What God's almighty pow'r 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 toilsome way along,
I sing aloud His 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 pow'r, 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.

Amen.
