Give thanks unto the Lord our God,
Sing praise unto His name;
Sing psalms and tell it all abroad,
O tell of His great fame.
Glory ye in His holy name,
Rejoice in all He’s done;
He took our sin, He took our shame,
Great victory He’s won.
Seek ye the Lord, O seek His strength,
His face continually;
Recall His love, the awesome depth,
And call on Him alway.
Rejoice O heaven’s, in thankfulness,
Give glory unto God;
Declare His beauty, holiness,
He reigns, He is our God!
Blessed be God forevermore,
All people say, amen!
His holy name praise and adore,
From now unto the end.
(Tune: Effingham; Bethany; CM)
