Sing Praise to God Who Reigns Above

Melody - Melody - "Mit Freuden Zart", 1566

Johann Jakob Schutz

Sing Praise to God who reigns above,
The God of all creation,
The God of pow'r, the God of love,
The God of our salvation;
With healing balm my soul He fills,
Ev'ry faithless murmur stills:
To God all praise and glory!

2. What God's almighty pow'r hath made
His gracious mercy keepeth,
By morning glow or evening shade
His watchful eye ne'er sleepeth;
Within the kingdom of His might,
Lo! all is just and all is right:
To God all praise and glory!

  3. The Lord is never far away,
But thro' all grief distressing,
An ever present help and stay,
Our peace and joy and blessing;
As with a mother's tender
hand He leads His own, His chosen band:
To God all praise and glory!

4. Thus all my toilsome way along
I sing aloud His praises,
That all may hear the grateful song
My voice unwearied raises;
Be joyful in the Lord my heart!
Both soul and body bear your part:
To God all praise and glory!
