Theme: Morning and Opening Hymns

1.  Praise, my soul, the God of heaven,
    Glad of heart your carols raise;
    Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
    Who, like me, should sing God's praise?
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    Praise the Maker all your days!

2.  Praise God for the grace and favor
    Shown our forebears in distress;
    God is still the same forever,
    Slow to chide, and swift to bless.
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    Sing our Maker's faithfulness!

3.  Like a loving parent caring,
    God knows well our feeble frame;
    Gladly all our burdens bearing,
    Still to countless years the same.
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    All within me, praise God's name!

4.  Angels, teach us adoration,
    You behold God face to face;
    Sun and moon and all creation,
    Dwellers all in time and space.
    Alleluia! Alleluia!
    Praise with us the God of grace!
