Give to the Lord of lords renown, The King of kings with glory crown: His mercies ever shall endure, When lords and kings are known no more. He built the earth, he spread the sky, And fixed the starry lights on high: Wonders of grace to God belong, Repeat his mercies in your song. He fills the sun with morning light; He bids the moon direct the night: His mercies ever shall endure, When suns and moons shall shine no more. The Jews he freed from Pharaoh's hand, And brought them to the promised land Wonders of grace to God belong, Repeat his mercies in your song. He saw the Gentiles dead in sin, And felt his pity work within His mercies ever shall endure, When death and sin shall reign no more. He sent his Son with power to save From guilt, and darkness, and the grave Wonders of grace to God belong, Repeat his mercies in your song. Through this vain world he guides our feet, And leads us to his heav'nly seat His mercies ever shall endure, When this vain world shall be no more.

His power and grace Are still the same; And let his name Have endless praise. How mighty is his hand! What wonders hath he done! He formed the earth and seas, And spread the heav'ns alone. Thy mercy, Lord, Shall still endure; And ever sure Abides thy word. His wisdom framed the sun To crown the day with light; The moon and twinkling stars To cheer the darksome night. His power and grace Are still the same; And let his name Have endless praise. [He smote the first-born sons, The flower of Egypt, dead; And thence his chosen tribes With joy and glory led. Thy mercy, Lord, Shall still endure; And ever sure Abides thy word. His power and lifted rod Cleft the Red Sea in two; And for his people made A wondrous passage through. His power and grace Are still the same; And let his name Have endless praise. But cruel Pharaoh there, With all his host, he drowned; And brought his Isr'el safe Through a long desert ground. Thy mercy, Lord, Shall still endure; And ever sure Abides thy word. The kings of Canaan fell Beneath his dreadful hand; While his own servants took Possession of their land. His power and grace Are still the same; And let his name Have endless praise.] He saw the nations lie All perishing in sin, And pitied the sad state The ruined world was in. Thy mercy, Lord, Shall still endure; And ever sure Abides thy word. He sent his only Son To save us from our woe, From Satan, sin, and death, And every hurtful foe. His power and grace Are still the same; And let his name Have endless praise. Give thanks aloud to God, To God the heav'nly King; And let the spacious earth His works and glories sing. Thy mercy, Lord, Shall still endure; And ever sure Abides thy word.

[Chorus] 5 But buried Pharaoh and his bands, And led his flock through desert lands, Who smote proud monarchs in their might, And warlike princes slew in fight. [Chorus] 6 Sihon, the king of Heshbon's towers, And Og, the Lord of Bashan's powers, And for inheritance their land He gave to Israel's chosen band.

And brought his saints through desert ground; Eternal be his praise! Great monarchs fell beneath his hand; Victorious is his sword; While Isr'el took the promised land; And faithful is his word.] He saw the nations dead in sin; He felt his pity move: How sad the state the world was in! How boundless was his love! He sent to save us from our woe; His goodness never fails; From death, and hell, and every foe; And still his grace prevails.
