Original text and translations
Thee will I bless, my God and King,
Thy endless praise proclaim:
This tribute daily I will bring,
And ever bless thy name.
Thou, Lord, beyond compare, art great,
And highly to be prais'd;
Thy majesty, with boundless height,
Above our knowledge rais'd.
Renown'd for mighty acts, thy fame
To future time extends;
From age to age thy glorious name
Whilst I thy glory and renown
And wondrous works express,
The world with me thy might shall own,
And thy great pow'r confess.
