1 Give praise to God our King,
O earth and heaven!
Of grace and mercy sing,
So freely given.
O Savior, who hast died our expiation,
Thy name be glorified,
Thy name be glorified,
By all creation.

2 O Holy Ghost, our Guide
To heaven'ly glory,
In all our hearts abide,
Lord,we implore Thee;
In us, blest Spirit, reign,
Thine aid bestowing;
Our souls with peace sustain,
Our souls with peace sustain,
Peace still o'erflowing.

3 Lift we our hearts on high
In adoration;
Our Lord is ever nigh
With consolation.
Let ev'ry grief be still,
light He will send us;
In life, in death, He will
In life, in death, He will
Always defend us.
