101. Sing Praise to God Who Reigns

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 faith less murmur stilled.
To God all praise and glory!

2 What in almighty pow’r was made,
God’s gracious mercy keepeth.
By morning glow or evening shade,
God’s watchful eye ne’er sleepeth.
Within the shelter of God’s might,
lo! all is just, and all is right.
To God all praise and glory!

3 Our God is never far away,
through out all grief distressing,
an ever present help and stay,
our peace, and joy, and blessing.
As with a mother’s tender hand,
God gently leads the chosen band.
To God all praise and glory!

4 Then all my gladsome way along,
I sing aloud thy praises,
that all may hear the grateful song
my voice unwearied raises:
Be joyful in your God, my heart!
With soul and body bear your part!
To God all praise and glory!
