Full Text

1 O Lord, You are my God and King,
And I will ever bless Your Name.
I will extol You every day,
And evermore Thy praise proclaim.
You, Lord, are greatly to be praised.

All generations shall tell forth
The mighty wonders You have wrought.

2 How rich in grace are You, O Lord

Your creatures know Your constant care.
To all Your works Your love extends,
All souls Your tender mercies share.

3 Your works will give You thanks, O Lord,
Your saints Your mighty acts will show,
Till all the peoples of the earth
Your kingdom, power, glory know.
Eternal is Your kingdom, Lord,
Forever strong, forever sure;
While generations rise and die,
Your high dominion will endure.

Presbyterian Hymnal, 1990
