1. Songs of praise, songs of praise,
Father of life, to Thee!
Praise, praise, now we raise,
For all Thy gifts so free!
Joyfully owning Thy love and Thy power,
Grateful for blessings renewed every hour,
Lord, our full hearts would be
Ever singing and ever bringing Thee praise!

2. For Thy love, for Thy love,
How can we praise Thee, Lord!
Holy love from above,
How can we bless Thee, Lord!
Ever we’ll live in thy service so sweet,
Laying our hearts and our lives at Thy feet,
Trusting Thy gracious word,
Ever singing and ever bringing Thee praise!
