818. Praise ye the Lord, ye servants of the Lord

1 Praise ye the Lord, ye servants of the Lord:
praise ye his name; his lordly honour sing:
thee we adore; to thee glad homage bring;
thee we acknowledge; God to be adored
for thy great glory, Sovereign, Lord, and King.

2 Father of Christ -- of him whose work was done,
when by his death he took our sins away --
to thee belongeth worship, day by day,
yea, holy Father, everlasting Son,
and Holy Ghost, all praise be thine for aye!
