39b. Praise, my soul, the King of heaven

1. Praise, my soul, the King of heaven;
To His feet thy tribute bring;
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
Who like me His praise should sing?
Praise Him! praise Him!
Praise the everlasting King!

2. Praise Him for His grace and favour
To our fathers in distress;
Praise Him, still the same for ever,
Slow to chide, and swift to bless:
Praise Him! praise Him!
Glorious in His faithfulness.

3. Father-like He tends and spares us;
Well our feeble frame He knows;
In His hands He gently bears us,
Rescues us from all our foes:
Praise Him! praise Him!
Widely as His mercy flows.

4. Frail as summer's flower we flourish;
Blows the wind and it is gone,
But, while mortals rise and perish,
God endures unchanging on;
Praise Him! praise Him!
Praise the high eternal One!

5. Angels, help us to adore Him,
Ye behold Him face to face;
Sun and moon, bow down before Him;
Dwellers all in time and space.
Praise Him! praise Him!
Praise with us the God of grace!
