Praise Him!

CarolePics

Praise Him all you peoples!
Send praises abroad,
Draw words from deep within,
Give honour, praise, adore!
To the king who reigns,
Who dwells forevermore,
To whom our hearts beat,
To whom our spirits bow,
By whom only our hearts are tamed,
Stone-hard hearts made into flesh,
Who our conscience inspires,
And leads the wayward home,
Who gives the foolish wisdom,
Directs the disillusioned,
Who in darkness is the light,
Our hope when despair strikes.
All praise is the Lord’s,
Praise Him!
The birds in chorus sing,
The roaring waves resound,
Thunder strikes and earth trembles,
He commands all the world,
The work of His own hands.
How manifold are His creations!
In wisdom He has made them.
All our prayers to Him ascend,
There’s not one He disregards,
He lifts the bowed down,
Strengthens the weak and lowly,
He fights for the oppressed,
Defends the widow and fatherless,
Justice is forever with Him,
The wicked can’t escape,
He grants the righteous peace.

Let your heart explode with praise,
Have your tongue confess His name,
Great is the Lord!
Worthy of every praise!
Great in might and power,
Who established earth’s foundation,
So that it cannot be moved.
11.8.18
