Henry Francis Lyte, 1834

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven,
To his feet thy tribute bring;
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
Who like me his praise should sing?
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Praise the everlasting King.

2. Praise him for his grace and favour
To our fathers in distress;
Praise him still the same as ever,
Slow to childe, and swift to bless:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Glorious in his faithfulness.

3. Father-like, he tends and spares us,
Well our feeble frame he knows;
In his hands he gentle bears us,
Rescues us from all our foes:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Widely as his mercy flows.

4. 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:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Praise with us the God of grace.
