Lyrics

Verse 1
Swell the anthem, raise the song,
Praises to our God belong;
Saints and angels join to sing
Praises to our heav’nly King.

Chorus
Praise ye the Lord, praise ye the Lord,
Let all the people sing;
Praise ye the Lord, praise ye the Lord,
Glory to God our King.

Verse 2
Blessings from his lib’ral hand
Flow around this happy land;
Kept by him no foes annoy,
Peace and freedom we enjoy.

Verse 3
Here beneath a virtuous sway,
May we cheerfully obey;
Never feel oppression’s rod,
Ever own and worship God.

Verse 4
Hark! the voice of nature sings
Praises to the King of kings;
Let us join the choral song,
And the grateful notes prolong.
