A Hymn of Praise

Praise ye the Lord
For His goodness and mercy!
Goodness and mercy unto us He has shown.
His loving eye watches in tenderness over us,
However far from His path we may roam.
Praise ye the Lord!

Praise ye the Lord
That unto the weak He gives strength!
Strength when sorely oppressed by the strong.
The oppressed always conquer, for He always aids them,
'Though their heart may be faint, and the struggle seem long.
Praise ye the Lord!

Praise ye the Lord
That He cares for our troubles!
Troubles that to Him must seem very small.
Tho He sees, understands them, and pitieth His children,
Like as a Father, who comes at their call,
Praise ye the Lord!

Praise ye the Lord.
That He pardons and forgives us!
Pardons all who repent and turn from wrong!
Oh! Praise ye the Lord, for His goodness and mercy
Praise him in heart and praise Him in song.
Praise ye the Lord!
