Franz J. Haydn (1732-1809)

From The Psalter (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: United Presbyterian Board of Publication, 1912), number 375.

Creation Franz J. Haydn, 1798 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Exalt the Lord, His praise proclaim;
All ye His servants, praise His name,
Who in the Lord’s house ever stand
And humbly serve at His command.
The Lord is good, His praise proclaim;
Since it is pleasant, praise His name;
His people for His own He takes
And His peculiar treasure makes.

I know the Lord is high in state,
Above all gods our Lord is great;
The Lord performs what He decrees,
In Heaven and earth, in depths and seas.
He makes the vapors to ascend
In clouds from earth’s remotest end;
The lightnings flash at His command,
He holds the tempest in His hand.

Exalt the Lord, His praise proclaim;
All ye His servants, praise His name,
Who in the Lord’s house ever stand
And humbly serve at His command,
Forever praise and bless His name,
And in the church His praise proclaim;
In Zion is His dwelling place;
Praise ye the Lord, show forth His grace.
