859. Sing Praise to God

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 is filled,
And ev'ry faithless murmur stilled:
To God all praise and glory!

2 The angel host, O King of kings,
Your praise forever telling,
In earth and sky all living things
Beneath your shadow dwelling,
Adore the wisdom which could span,
And pow'r which formed creation's plan:
To God all praise and glory!

3 What God's almighty pow'r has made
With gracious mercy keeping,
By morning glow or evening shade
God's watchful eye ne'er sleeping:
Within the reign of endless might,
Lo, all is just and all is right:
To God all praise and glory!

4 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, bear your part:
To God all praise and glory!
