The United Methodist Hymnal


Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven

1.	Praise, my soul, the King of heaven, 
	to the throne thy tribute bring; 
	ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven, 
	evermore God's praises sing.
	Alleluia!  Alleluia!  
	Praise the everlasting King.

2.	Praise the Lord for grace and favor 
	to all people in distress; 
	praise God, still the same as ever, 
	slow to chide, and swift to bless.  
	Alleluia!  Alleluia!  
	Glorious now God's faithfulness.

3.	Father-like, God tends and spares us; 
	well our feeble frame God knows; 
	mother-like, God gently bears us, 
	rescues us from all our foes.  
	Alleluia!  Alleluia!  
	Widely yet God's mercy flows.

4.	Angels in the heights, adoring, 
	you behold God face to face; 
	saints triumphant, now adoring, 
	gathered in from every race.  
	Alleluia!  Alleluia!  
	Praise with us the God of grace.
