Praise the Lord—His power confess;
Praise Him in His holiness;
Praise Him as the theme inspires,
Praise Him as His fame requires.
Let the trumpets lofty sound;
Spread its loudest notes around;
Let the harp unite in praise,
With the sacred minstrel’s lays.
Let the organ join to bless
God, the Lord of righteousness;
Tune your voice to spread the fame
Of the great Jehovah’s name.
All who dwell beneath His light,
In His praise, your hearts unite,
While the stream of song is poured,
Praise and magnify the Lord.
