Lyrics

Let all men praise the Lord,
In worship lowly bending;
On His most holy word,
Redeemed from woe, depending;
He gracious is and just;
From childhood us doth lead;
On Him we place our trust
And hope in time of need.

Now glo­ry, honor, praise,
From all on earth be given,
To God who reigns above,
Enthroned in highest Hea­ven.
His mercy is for aye;
His truth is still the same;
He rules the night and day,
Praise to His holy name.
