Sing to the Lord a joy­ful song,
Lift up your hearts, your voic­es raise;
To us His gra­cious gifts be­long,
To Him our songs of love and praise.

For life and love, for rest and food,
For dai­ly help and night­ly care,
Sing to the Lord, for He is good,
And praise His name, for it is fair.

For strength to those who on Him wait,
His truth to prove, His will to do,
Praise ye our God, for He is great,
Trust in His name, for it is true.

For joys un­told, that from above
Cheer those who love His sweet em­ploy,
Sing to our God, for He is love,
Exalt His name, for it is joy.

For He is Lord of Heav’n and earth,
Whom an­gels serve and saints ad­ore,
The Fa­ther, Son, and Ho­ly Ghost,
To whom be praise for­ev­er­more.
