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.
