METER:  CM (86 86)
This is the meter for such hymns as "O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing"

1.  All of your works shall praise you, Lord,
    Your faith-ful bless your name.
    They speak your roy-al ma-jes-ty,
    And of your ho-ly might.
2.  They tell all peo-ple of your might,
    The glo-ry of your reign.
    You reign, O Lord, for-ev-er-more,
    For-ev-er with-out end.
3.  The Lord is faith-ful in his words,
    And gra-cious in his deeds.
    Those who are fall-ing he up-holds,
    He rais-es those bowed down.
4.  The eyes of all look un-to you,
    You give them food when due,
    Your hand you o-pen, and you fill
    Each liv-ing thing's de-sire.
5.  The Lord is just in all his ways,
    And kind in all he does.
    The Lord is near to all who call
    Up-on his name in truth.
