Praise to the Holy One, Jesus our king;
Songs of His mighty love, now let us sing;
Lift we our joyful eyes, up to His throne;
He hath created us, we are His own.

Sing how He bore the cross, sing how He gave
Freely His precious blood, lost ones to save;
Tell how He conquered death, O wondrous love!
Jesus our advocate, liveth above.

Sing of Him joyfully; sing and proclaim
Hope to the desolate, rest thro’ His name;
Sing of His righteousness, mercy and love;
Sing of the mansions bright, waiting above.
