Wondrous King, All-Glorious

Mountains and Lake

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord!
(Psalm 150:6)

1.   Wondrous King, all glorious,
      Sovereign Lord victorious,
        O, receive our praise with favor!
      From thee welled God's kindness
      Though we in our blindness
        Strayed from Thee, our blessed Savior.
           Strengthen Thou,
           Help us now;
      Let our tongues be singing,
      Thee our praises bringing.

2.   Heavens, spread the story
      Of our Maker's glory,
        All the pomp of earth obscuring.
      Sun, thy rays be sending,
      Thy bright beams expending,
        Light to all the earth assuring.
           Moon and star,
           Praise afar
      Him who glorious made you;
      The vast heavens aid you.

3.   O my soul, rejoicing,
      Sing, thy praises voicing,
        Sing, with hymns of faith adore Him!
      All who here have being,
      Shout, your voices freeing,
        Bow down in the dust before Him.
           He is God
      Praise alone the Savior,
      Here and there forever.

4.   Hallelujahs render
      To the Lord most tender,
        Ye who know and love the Savior.
      Hallelujahs sing ye,
      Ye redeemed, O, bring ye
        Hearts that yield Him glad behavior.
           Blest are ye
      Sinless there forever,
      Ye shall laud Him ever.
