Great is the Lord, worthy of praise
Beyond what minds can know
Each generation thus displays
Your pow’rful acts they show.
Majestic, glorious miracles
Declared by every tongue
Your goodness every spirit thrills
And joyful songs are sung.
Gracious, full of compassion, Lord
And slow to anger, too
By all Your works You are adored
We all give thanks to You.
With goodness and unfailing love
In glory You now reign
Your mighty acts we will speak of
Forever You remain.
The Lord lifts up all those who fall
And those bent low with cares
The Lord Is near to all who call
He hears their feeble prayers.
The eyes of all look to Your hand
Their needs You will supply
All living things wait Your command
Their wants You satisfy.
All the Lord’s deeds are right and kind
As those who fear Him know
The wicked are to death confined
Destroyed and filled with woe.
The Lord preserves all who love Him
Our mouths proclaim His praise
His name we bless with this our hymn
And shall through endless days.
