I’ll praise the Lord for joy below,
That fills my soul to overflow;
I’ll praise the Lord for grace divine
To feel and know that He is mine.

Refrain

Praise ye the Lord, while ages roll,
From sea to sea, from pole to pole!
Eternal life’s begun below;
His joy and peace thro’ grace I know.

I’ll praise the Lord for love that glows;
For peace that like a river flows;
I’ll praise the Lord for grace and power
To live like Jesus every hour.

Refrain

I’ll praise the Lord for His control;
For love divine, that saves the soul;
For love that guards from all my foes,
For love that bears my griefs and woes.

Refrain

I’ll praise the Lord yet more and more;
While pressing t’ward yon shining shore;
Life’s troubles sore are past and gone,
I’m resting now in Christ the Son.

Refrain
