Texts

Rise, my soul, and stretch thy wings

Praise the Lord Who Reigns Above

Praise the Lord who reigns above
and keeps his court below;
praise the holy God of love
and all his greatness show;
praise him for his noble deeds,
praise him for his matchless power;
him from whom all good proceeds
let earth and heaven adore.
