1.  Give glory and praise unto God,

The Father of all blessing;

His mighty wonders tell abroad,

His graciousness confessing.

With balm my inmost heart he fills,

His comfort all my anguish stills.

To God be praise and glory.

2.  The host of heaven praiseth thee,

O Lord of all dominions;

And mortal men, on land and sea,

Beneath thy shadowing pinions,

Exult in thy creative might

That doeth all things well and right.

To God be praise and glory.

3.  What God hath wrought to show his power

He evermore sustaineth;

He watches over us every hour,

His mercy never waineth.

Through all his kingdom’s wide domain,

His righteousness and justice reign.

To God be praise and glory.
