Theme: Morning and Opening Hymns
1. Sing praise to God who reigns above, the God of all creation, the God of pow'r, the God of love, the God of our salvation; with healing balm my soul he fills, and ev'ry faithless murmur stills: to God all praise and glory! 2. What God's almighty pow'r has made in mercy he is keeping, by morning glow or evening shade he watches without sleeping; within the kingdom of his might, Lo! all is just and all is right: to God all praise and glory! 3. The Lord is never far away, but, thro' all grief distressing, an everpresent help and stay, our peace and joy and blessing; as with a mother's tender hand he leads his own, his chosen band: to God all praise and glory! 4. So all my toilsome way along I sing aloud his praises, that all may hear the grateful song my voice unwearied raises; be joyful in the Lord, my heart, both soul and body, bear your part: to God all praise and glory!
