Fanny Crosby (1820–1915)


Praise our cre­at­or and Sav­ior eter­nal,
Him who re­deemed us from death and the grave;
Sing of His great­ness, O hail and adore Him,
Strong to de­liv­er, and migh­ty to save.


Praise Him, praise Him,
Glory in the highest unto Him as­crib­ing;
Praise Him, praise Him,
Blessèd be His name, our Lord and king!

Praise our cre­at­or and gra­cious de­fend­er,
Rock where in safe­ty we still may abide;
He is our shep­herd, how gent­ly He leads us,
Where in the val­ley the cool wa­ters glide.


Praise our cre­at­or, the fount­ain of good­ness,
Now in His grand­eur ex­alt­ed above;
Rest in His mer­cy and trust in His pro­mise,
Ever to keep us, up­held by His love.
