Great is the Lord, who ruleth over all!
Wake, wake and sing, wake, wake and sing;
Down at His feet in adoration fall.
Praise and magnify our king.

Refrain

O ye redeemed above,
Strike, strike your harps of love;
Hail the Blessèd One,
Hail the Mighty One.
Sweetly His wonders tell,
Loudly His glory swell,
Praise and magnify our king.

Great is the Lord, who spake and it was done;
Wake, wake and sing, wake, wake and sing;
Honor and strength, dominion He has won,
Praise and magnify our king.

Refrain

Great is the Lord: oh, come with holy mirth;
Wake, wake and sing, wake, wake and sing;
Come and rejoice, ye nations of the earth,
Praise and magnify our king.

Refrain

Great is the Lord, and holy is His name!
Wake, wake and sing, wake, wake and sing;
Angels and men, His wondrous works proclaim,
Praise and magnify our king.
