PRAISE THE LORD WHO REIGNS ABOVE

And keeps His court below

Praise the holy God of love

Praise Him for His noble deeds

Praise Him for His matchless power

Him from whom all good proceeds

Let earth and heaven adore

Let earth and heaven adore

 

Praise the name of Christ

Celebrate and lift Him up high

Praise the Lord of life

We'll sing the story

Of Honor and glory

And praise the name of Christ

 

God in whom they move and live 

Let every creature sing 

Glory to their Maker give 

And homage to their King 

Hallowed be thy name beneath 

As in heaven on earth adored 

Praise the Lord in every breath 

Let all things praise the Lord

Let all things praise the Lord
