Verse 1: A joyful song of praise we sing, And thankfully we gather To bless the love of God above, Our everlasting Father.
Verse 2: From shades of night He calls the light, And from the sod the flower; From ev’ry cloud His blessings break In sunshine or in shower.
Verse 3: For nothing falls unknown to Him, Or care or joy or sorrow; And He whose mercy ruled the past Will be our stay tomorrow.
Verse 4: Then praise the Lord with one accord, To His great name give glory; And of His neverchanging love Repeat the wondrous story.
Chorus: In Him rejoice with heart and voice Whose glory fadeth never, Whose providence is our defense, Who lives and loves for ever.
