O Lord! My God and King

O Lord! my God and king,
I’ll praise you evermore,
each day your praises sing,
your holy name adore:
beyond our power to contemplate,
how great the Lord! His praise how great!

2. Your great historic deeds
from age to age are taught:
your glory far exceeds
the scale of human thought;
so generous is the God we bless,
so faithful in his righteousness!

3. The Lord is full of grace,
his kindness has no bounds,
his anger he delays,
his steadfast love abounds;
to every creature he has made
the Lord’s compassion is displayed.

4. Your glory they declare,
and with your saints make known
to people everywhere
what wonders you have done:
your kingdom, glorious in its power,
through all the ages shall endure.

5. He makes the fallen rise;
all living things he feeds:
to him they lift their eyes,
his hand supplies their needs;
so is his faithful love displayed
to every creature he has made.

6. The Lord is near to all
who come in simple prayer;
he hears his people’s call,
the wicked he’ll not spare:
let every living soul adore
his holy name for evermore.
