Praise the Lord, His glories show, Alleluia!
Saints within God’s courts below, Alleluia!
Angels round the throne above, Alleluia!
Praise Him, all that share His love, Alleluia!

Earth, to Heaven exalt the strain, Alleluia!
Send it, Heaven, to earth again, Alleluia!
Age to age, and shore to shore, Alleluia!
Praise Him, praise Him evermore! Alleluia!

Praise the Lord, His goodness trace, Alleluia!
All the wonders of His grace, Alleluia!
All that He hath borne and done, Alleluia!
All He sends us through His Son. Alleluia!

Strings and voices, hands and hearts, Alleluia!
In the concert bear your parts, Alleluia!
All that breathe, your Lord adore, Alleluia!
Praise Him, praise Him evermore!
