Lyrics

Praise the Lord, in ac­cord,
For His mer­cies free;
Sent in love, from above,
Giv’n to you and me;
Praise His name, bless­èd name,
’Tis a sound so sweet,
O’er and o’er, more and more,
E’er that name re­peat.

Refrain

[Male voices]
Praise Him, praise Him, as the days go by,
Praise Him, praise Him, as the mo­ments fly;
[All voices in un­ison]
Sing al­le­lu­ia, sing al­le­lu­ia,
Sing, O sing un­to God on high.

Everywhere, let us share,
Love we all may know;
Sound His praise, thro’ life’s days,
Everywhere you go;
Tell to men, once again,
Jesus reigns on high,
Lo, He brings, ev­er brings,
His sal­va­tion nigh.

Refrain

Winds that blow, flow’rs that grow,
Tell of lov­ing care;
So may we clear­ly see
God is ev­ery­where;
Life and love, from above,
Dwell on ev­er­y side;
So may all, great and small,
In His care abide.

Refrain

Gladly raise songs of praise,
To the Lord of all;
He whose ear bends to hear
All who on Him call;
To His throne, all His own,
May draw nigh, nor fear;
To Him pray, day by day,
He will ev­er hear.

Refrain
