67. Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven

1 Praise, my soul, the King of heaven,
To His feet thy tribute bring;
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
Evermore His praises sing!
Praise Him, praise Him, praise Him, praise Him,
Praise the Everlasting King.

2 Praise Him for His grace and favor
To His people in distress;
Praise Him, still the same forever,
Slow to chide and swift to bless.
Praise Him, praise Him, praise Him, praise Him,
Glorious in His faithfulness.

3 Father-like, He tends and spares us;
Well our feeble frame He knows;
In His hands He gently bears us,
Rescues us from all our foes.
Praise Him, praise Him, praise Him, praise Him,
Widely as His mercy flows.

4 Frail as summer's flow'r we flourish,
Blows the wind and it is gone;
But while mortals rise and perish
God endures unchanging on.
Praise Him, Praise Him, praise Him, praise Him,
Praise the High Eternal One.

5 Angels, help us to adore Him:
Ye behold Him face to face;
Saints triumphant, bow before Him;
Gathered in from ev'ry race.
Praise Him, praise Him, praise Him, praise Him,
Praise with us the God of grace.
