METER:  CM (86 86)
This is the meter of such hymns as "Am I a Soldier of the Cross" and "O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing"

1.  Praise God, you ser-vants of the Lord,
    O praise God's ho-ly name!
    Blest be God's name from this time forth,
    Now and for-ev-er-more.
2.  From rise of sun un-til it sets
    God's name is to be praised.
    The Lord is high o'er na-tions all,
    God's glory o'er the heav'ns.
3.  Oh, who is like the Lord our God,
    Who is seat-ed on high,
    Who looks far down on heav'n and earth?
    Oh, who is like the Lord?
4.  God lifts the poor up from the dust,
    The need-y from the ash,
    God lifts them to an e-qual state
    With rul-ers of his folk.
5.  He wel-comes home the bar-ren one,
    A moth-er she be-comes,
    With joy her child-ren she re-ceives.
    Let all flesh praise the Lord!
