My dear Redeemer's praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!

That bids our sorrows cease;

'Tis life, and health, and peace.

He breaks the power of cancell'd sin,
And sets the prisoner free;

His blood avail'd for me.

Praise everlasting King.

New life the dead receive;
The mournful broken hearts rejoice;
The humble poor believe.

Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,
Your loosen'd tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come;
And leap, ye lame for joy!

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
Praise everlasting King.

My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honours of Thy name.
