1.  Praise the Lord, for he is good,
    His love is e-ter-nal.
    Praise the great-est God of all,
    His love is e-ter-nal.
    Give thanks to the Lord of Lords,
    His love is e-ter-nal.
    He a-lone does might-y deeds,
    His love is e-ter-nal.
2.  He in wis-dom made the skies,
    His love is e-ter-nal.
    He the earth spread o'er the seas,
    His love is e-ter-nal.
    He made lights to rule the sky,
    His love is e-ter-nal.
    Sun by day; moon, stars by night,
    His love is e-ter-nal.
3.  He re-mem-bered us when low,
    His love is e-ter-nal.
    He has saved us from our foes,
    His love is e-ter-nal.
    He gives food to all that live,
    His love is e-ter-nal.
    Give thanks to the God of heav'n,
    His love is e-ter-nal.
