Lyrics:
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!
