Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven
By Henry F. Lyte
Sung in 3/4 time
1. Praise, my soul, the King of heaven; To His feet your tribute bring. Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven, Ever more His praises sing. Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia! Praise the everlasting King!
2. Praise Him for His grace and favor To our fathers in distress; Praise Him, still the same as ever, Slow to chide and swift to bless. Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia! 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. Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia! Widely yet His mercy flows.
4. Angels in the height, adore Him; You behold Him face to face. Saints triumphant, bow before Him; Gathered in from every race. Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia! Praise with us the God of grace!
