1 O come, my soul, sing praise to God your Maker,
and all within me, praise his holy name.
Sing praise to God, forget not all his mercies,
his pardoning grace and saving love proclaim.

Praise him, you angels, wondrous in might,
praise him you servants who in his will delight.

2 Good is the Lord and full of kind compassion,
most slow to anger, plenteous in love.
Rich is his grace to all who humbly seek him,
boundless and endless as the heavens above. [Refrain]

3 His love is like a father's to his children,
tender and kind to all who fear his name;
for well he knows our weakness and our frailty,
he knows that we are dust, he knows our frame. [Refrain]

4 We fade and die like flowers that grow in beauty,
like tender grass that soon will disappear;
but evermore the love of God is changeless,
still shown to those who look to him in fear. [Refrain]

5 High in the heavens his throne is fixed forever,
his kingdom rules o'er all from pole to pole.
Praise to the Lord through all his wide dominion,
forever praise his holy name, my soul. [Refrain]
