VERSE 1:
Praise, my soul, the King of heaven;
to his feet your tribute bring.
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
evermore his praises sing.
Alleluia, alleluia! Praise the everlasting King!
Alleluia, alleluia! Praise the everlasting King!

VERSE 2:
Praise Him for His grace and favor
to our fathers in distress.
Praise Him, still the same forever,
slow to chide, and swift to bless.
Alleluia, alleluia! Glorious in His faithfulness!
Alleluia, alleluia! Glorious in His faithfulness!

VERSE 3:
Fatherlike He tends and spares us;
well our feeble frame He knows.
In His hands He gently bears us,
rescues us from all our foes.
Alleluia, alleluia! Widely yet His mercy flows!
Alleluia, alleluia! Widely yet His mercy flows!

VERSE 4:
Frail as summer's flower we flourish
blows the wind, and it is gone.
But while mortals rise and perish,
God endures unchanging on!
Alleluia, alleluia! Praise the High Eternal One!
Alleluia, alleluia! Praise the High Eternal One!

VERSE 5:
Angels, in the heights adore Him;
ye behold Him face to face.
Saints triumphant, bow before Him,
gathered in from every race.
Alleluia, alleluia! Praise with us the God of Grace!
Alleluia, alleluia! Praise with us the God of Grace!
