Lyrics

O praise the Lord, ye nations all,
Whose eye beholds the sparrow’s fall;
At morn and night His deeds recall,
Who reigneth evermore.

Refrain

O praise the Lord, our mighty king;
Let mortal tongues their tribute bring,
While Heav’n and earth His glory sing,
Who reigns evermore.

He crowns each day with blessings new,
His gifts descend like early dew;
His ways are just, His statutes true,
Who reigneth evermore.

Refrain

We would His goodness gladly own,
And bow with reverence at His throne,
To worship Him, our God alone,
Who reigneth evermore.
