Sing praise to God who reigns above

Sing praise to God who reigns above,
the God of all creation,
the God of power, the God of love,
the God of our salvation;
with healing balm my soul he fills,
and every faithless murmur stills:
to God all praise and glory!

2. What God’s almighty power has made
is ever in his keeping,
by early dawn or evening shade
his watchful eye unsleeping;
within the kingdom of his might
his wisdom governs all aright-
to God all praise and glory!

3. I cried to him in time of need:
the Lord God heard my calling!
For death he gave me life indeed
and kept my feet from falling.
For this my thanks shall endless be;
O thank him, thank our God, with me-
to God all praise and glory!

4. The Lord will not forsake his flock,
his chosen generation;
he is their refuge and their rock,
their peace and their salvation.
As with a mother’s tender hand
he leads his own, his chosen band:
to God all praise and glory!

5. Then come before his presence now
and banish fear and sadness;
to your redeemer pay your vow
and sing with joy and gladness:
though great distress my soul befell,
the Lord, my God, did all things well-
to God all praise and glory!
