O God, my heart is steadfast;
With all my soul I sing;
I give You praise, O Lord.
Sweet music I will make;
The dawn I will awake;
Hear now my praise, O Lord!

Among the many nations
And peoples on this earth,
I’ll sing Your praise, O Lord.
For great is Your vast love,
High as the heav’ns above;
Hear now my praise, O Lord!

Your faithfulness is great, Lord;
It reaches to the skies;
I sing Your praise, O Lord.
With You the victory’s close;
You trample down my foes;
Hear now my praise, O Lord!

O God, be now exalted
Above the heavens high;
I sing Your praise, O Lord.
And let Your glory be
O’er all the land and sea;
Hear now my praise, O Lord!
