View Lyrics
O Lord, You are my God and King,
And I will ever bless Your name.
I will extol You every day,
And evermore Your praise proclaim.
The Lord is greatly to be praised;
His greatness is beyond our thoughts.
From age to age the sons of men
Shall tell the wonders God has wrought.

Upon Your glorious majesty
And wondrous works my mind shall dwell.
Your deeds fill all the world with awe,
And of Your greatness I will tell.
Your matchless goodness and Your grace
Your people shall commemorate,
And all Your truth and righteousness
My joyful song shall celebrate.

The Lord our God is rich in grace,
Most tender and compassionate;
His anger is most slow to rise
His lovingkindness is most great.
The Lord is good in all His ways,
His creatures know His constant care;
To all His works His love extends,
And all His tender mercies share.

Your works shall give You thanks, O Lord,
Your saints Your mighty acts shall show,
Till o'er the earth the sons of men
Your kingdom, pow'r, and glory know.
Eternal is Your kingdom, Lord,
Forever strong and ever sure;
While generations rise and die,
Shall Your dominion still endure.
