1. I will ever sing Thy praises,
Mighty God and gracious King;
Loud my heart its tribute raises,
And to Thee my psalms I sing;
Thou art King of all creation,
Every land and every nation;
Thousand, thousand thanks to Thee,
Mighty God, my song shall be!

2. All the people shall proclaim Thee,
Sing Thy praise from shore to shore;
Every human heart shall name Thee,
God and King forevermore;
On Thy throne in heaven vaulted,
In Thy majesty exalted,
Thousand, thousand thanks to Thee,
Mighty God, my song shall be!

3. When at last my feet have found Thee,
When at last I am Thy own;
When the ransomed hosts surround Thee,
On Thy great eternal throne;
When in yonder land of glory
Angels tell redemption’s story,
Thousand, thousand thanks to Thee,
Mighty God, my song shall be!
