1 Fill now our life, O Lord our God,
in every part with praise,
that our whole being may proclaim
your being and your ways.
2 Not for the lip of praise alone,
nor even the praising heart
we ask, but for a life made up
of praise in every part.
3 Praise in the common things of life,
its goings out and in,
praise in each duty and each deed,
though humble and unseen.
4 So, gracious Lord, you shall receive
from us the glory due,
and so we shall begin on earth
the song for ever new.
