1 Praise the Lord, His glories show
Saints within His courts below,
Angels round His throne above,
All that see and share God’s love:
Earth to heaven and heaven to earth,
Tell His wonders, sing His worth,
Age to age, and shore to shore.
Praise Him, praise Him, evermore.
w Praise the Lord, His mercies trace;
Praise His providence and grace,
All that He for man hath done,
All He sends us through His Son.
Strings and voices, hands and hearts,
In the concert bear your parts:
All that breathe, your Lord adore,
Praise Him, praise Him, evermore.
The Hymnal: Published by the authority of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A., 1895

|Notes:||In 1836, Lyte published a revised version, where the second verse began: "Earth to heaven exalt the strain, Send it, heaven, to earth again." Alternate tune: GWALCHMAI, Joseph D. Jones, 1868|
Praise the Lord, His glories show . H. F. Lyle. [Ps. cl.] Lyte's original version of Ps. cl., appeared in his Spirit of the Psalms, 1834, in 2 stanzas of 8 lines, and his revised version in the enlarged edition of the same work in 1836. The two texts may be distinguished by st. ii. 11. 1, 2 thus:—
1834. "Earth to heaven, and heaven to earth
Tell his wonders, sing His worth."
1836. "Earth, to heaven exalt the strain,
Send it, heaven, to earth again."
Both texts are in common use, but the first, as in the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Church Hymns, 1871; the Hymnal Companion, 1876, and many others, is the more widely used of the two.
