CH4 160 Praise, my soul, the King of heaven;

 

1                    Praise, my soul, the King of heaven;
                      to his feet thy tribute bring;
                      ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
                      who like me his praise should sing?
                      Praise him! Praise him!
                      Praise the everlasting King.

 

2                    Praise him for his grace and favour
                      to our fathers in distress;
                      praise him, still the same for ever,
                      slow to chide, and swift to bless:
                      Praise him! Praise him!
                      glorious in his faithfulness.

 

3                    Father-like he tends and spares us;
                      well our feeble frame he knows;
                      in his hands he gently bears us,
                      rescues us from all our foes:
                      Praise him! Praise him!
                      widely as his mercy flows.

 

4                    Frail as summer’s flower we flourish;
                      blows the wind and it is gone;
                      but, while mortals rise and perish,
                      God endures unchanging on.
                      Praise him! Praise him!
                      Praise the high eternal One.

 

5                    Angels, help us to adore him;
                      ye behold him face to face;
                      sun and moon, bow down before him;
                      dwellers all in time and space.
                      Praise him! Praise him!
                      Praise with us the God of grace.

 

Henry Francis Lyte (1793–1847)
from Psalm 103

 


CH4 153 – Great is thy faithfulness

 

1                  Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father,
                    there is no shadow of turning with thee;
                    thou changest not, thy compassions they fail not,
                    as thou hast been thou for ever wilt be.


                       Great is thy faithfulness!  Great is thy faithfulness!
                       Morning by morning new mercies I see;
                       all I have needed thy hand hath provided —
                       great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.

 

2                  Summer and winter, and seed-time and harvest,
                    sun, moon, and stars in their courses above,
                    join with all nature in manifold witness
                    to thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.

 

3                  Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
                    thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
                    strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
                    blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.

                    Thomas O. Chisholm (1866–1960)

 


 

CH4 110 - Glory be to God the Father

 

1                  Glory be to God the Father,
                    glory be to God the Son,
                   glory be to God the Spirit, —
                    great Jehovah, Three in One!
                    Glory, glory, glory, glory
                    while eternal ages run!

2                  Glory be to him who loved us,
                    washed us from each spot and stain!
                    Glory be to him who bought us,
                    made us kings with him to reign!
                    Glory, glory, glory, glory
                    to the Lamb that once was slain!

3                  Glory to the King of angels,
                    glory to the Church’s King,
                    glory to the King of nations!
                    Heaven and earth, your praises bring;
                    glory, glory, glory, glory
                    to the King of Glory bring!

4                  ‘Glory, blessing, praise eternal!
                    Thus the choir of angels sings;
                    ‘Honour, riches, power, dominion!
                    Thus its praise creation brings;
                    glory, glory, glory, glory,
                    glory to the King of kings!

Horatius N. Bonar (1808–1889)
