Peter S. M. Munro (1842–1922)


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.
