Ira D. Sankey (1840–1908)


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.
