Praise the Lord with hearts and voices,
Sing, O children, far and near;
Loudly praise till earth rejoices,
And all Heav’n bends down to hear.
Bells are ringing, voices singing,
Banners swinging all the time;
God the Father, God the Son,
God the Spirit, Three in One,
Be praise in psalm sublime.
Praise the Father—God Jehovah!
Praise the Son—our Savior, friend!
Praise the Holy Ghost, who over
Us will watch unto the end.
Up the hills of life ascending—
Oh, the many hills to climb;
Still our steps and voices blending,
Prayer and praise in cheerful rhyme.
Hope her boughs of palm to wave us,
Love to cheer the darkened way;
Faith to guide us, Christ to save us,
Lead us to eternal day.
