I will praise my great Creator,
For His wondrous grace and love;
’Tis meet that they should praise below,
Who would praise our God above.
I’ll rejoice in my Creator,
I will glory in my God,
My soul shall make her boast of Him,
And I’ll sound His praise abroad.
I will praise my dear Redeemer,
While He saves my soul from death;
I will glory in my Savior,
’Tis for this He gives me breath.
I will praise the Holy Spirit,
Sweetest comforter is He;
Praise is comely for the righteous,
O that I might righteous be.
