1 We praise thee, our Father, we worship in gladness;
Thou rulest the waves of the sea;
The light of thy count’nance dispelling our sadness,
We yield our allegiance to thee.

Refrain:
For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory,
Forever and ever, forever, amen;
For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory,
Forever and ever, forever, amen.

2 We praise thee, our Father, how safe our confiding,
For mercy upholdeth thy throne;
All goodness and blessing thy love is providing,
Thy strong arm defending thine own. [Refrain]

3 We praise thee, our Father, we bless and adore thee,
With bright, gleaming hosts of the sky;
With reverent spirits we bow down before thee;
Thy name is exalted most high. [Refrain]

4 We praise thee, our Father, our God everlasting;
The ages thy glories repeat;
The saints in thy mansions with rapture are casting
Their starry-gemmed crowns at thy feet. [Refrain]
