Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: How can I praise Thee, King of kings? Still to my soul this burden clings. Thou so great, and I so small: How can I praise Thee, Lord of all?
Verse 2: God of all earth and heav’n above, Father of mercy, grace and love, I so weak, and Thou so strong: Patient and good, Thou suff’rest long.
Chorus: Give me a voice to sing Thy praise; Righteous and true in all Thy ways. Beautiful song of love divine, Thankful, my God, that I am Thine.
Verse 3: Giver of life and all things good, Healing my soul as no man could. Everlasting life to give, So that one frail as I might live.
Verse 4: Son of Thy love Thou gave to die That the destroyer pass me by. Gave Thy word to lead me thru: Comfort, command, and promise true.
