Sing praise to the Fa­ther, Cre­at­or and King,
Whose mer­cy has taught us a new song to sing;
Who made us, and loved us though re­bels and lost,
And planned our re­demp­tion at in­fi­nite cost.


Bless the Lord, bless the Lord, bless the Lord, O my soul,
For the grace that re­deems, for the love that makes whole;
O come and ad­ore him, his glo­ries pro­claim,
And wor­ship before him—the Lord is his name!

Sing praise to the Sav­ior, Re­deem­er, and friend,
For grace past all tell­ing, for love with­out end;
Who stripped off his glo­ry, put on mor­tal sin,
And died and was ris’n full atone­ment to win.


Sing praise to the Spir­it, the gift of God’s love,
Who quick­ens our hearts with new life from above,
Who woos us, sub­dues us, and seals us his own,
And fault­less pre­sents us be­fore His great throne.


Sing praise to the Fa­ther, sing praise to the Son,
Sing praise to the Spir­it, great God Three in One;
The God of sal­va­tion, of glo­ry, of grace,
Who wrought our re­demp­tion—my soul, sing his praise!
