Timothy Dudley-Smith (1926–)


Tell out, my soul, the great­ness of the Lord!
Unnumbered bless­ings give my spir­it voice;
Tender to me the pro­mise of His Word;
In God my Sav­ior shall my heart re­joice.

Tell out, my soul, the great­ness of His name!
Make known His might, the deeds His arm has done;
His mer­cy sure, from age to age the same;
His ho­ly Name, the Lord, the migh­ty One.

Tell out, my soul, the great­ness of His might!
Powers and do­min­ions lay their glo­ry by;
Proud hearts and stub­born wills are put to flight;
The hun­gry fed, the hum­ble lift­ed high.

Tell out, my soul, the glo­ries of His Word!
Firm is His pro­mise, and His mer­cy sure.
Tell out my soul, the grea­tness of the Lord
To child­ren’s child­ren and for­ev­er­more!
