Verse 1
Praise ye the Father,
His power is everlasting;
Praise ye the Father,
Give thanks for all his benefits;

Sing forth your praises,
Let every heart be joyful;
Praise ye the Father,
Great Ruler, kind and merciful!

Praise be to him,
Who hath shown his mighty power.
Let every voice sound his praise
with exulting strains of gladness!

Great is the Lord,
Let his name be praised forever;
Come ye forth with your hearts attuned to sing,
Arise and praise ye the Father;

Glory to the Father!
To the great and mighty Ruler!
Glory to the Father,
Who alone hath the power to save!

Loudly let the chorus swell!
Loudly let the tuneful anthem ring!
Love and joy be now in every thankful hear,
Oh, praise ye the Lord.
