1  Praise, O praise our God and King;
hymns of adoration sing:
For his mercies still endure
ever faithful, ever sure.

2  Praise him that he made the sun
day by day his course to run: [Refrain]

3  And the silver moon by night,
shining with her gentle light: [Refrain]

4  Praise him that he gave the rain
to mature the swelling grain: [Refrain]

5  And hath bid the fruitful field
crops of precious increase yield: [Refrain]

6  Praise him for our harvest-store;
he hath filled the garner-floor: [Refrain]

7  And for richer food than this,
pledge of everlasting bliss: [Refrain]

8  Glory to our bounteous King;
glory let creation sing:
Glory to the Father, Son,
and blest Spirit, Three in One.
