95. We give you, God, immortal praise

We give you, God, immortal praise!
Pure truth and mercy are your ways;
wonders of grace to you belong;
we’ll tell your mercies in our song.
Give to the Lord of lords renown,
the King of kings wears glory’s crown;
your mercies ever shall endure,
when lords and kings are known no more.

You built the earth, you spread the sky,
and fixed the starry lights on high;
wonders of grace to you belong;
we’ll count your mercies in our song.
You give the sun its morning light,
you bid the moon direct the night;
your mercies ever shall endure,
when suns and moons shall shine no more.

You sent your Son with power to save
from guilt and darkness, and the grave;
wonders of grace to you belong;
we’ll tell your mercies in our song.
Through this tired world Christ guides our feet,
and leads us to your heavenly seat;
your mercies ever shall endure,
when this tired world shall be no more.
