Praise Prelude


Tune: Franconia

('Blest are the pure in heart')

Psalm 117


O praise the Lord, all you

Nations, come praise Him true

All you people, Jews and Gentiles

Manifold worship styles


For His loving-kindness

His mercy we confess

'Tis great toward us, we do say

He shall show us His way


And the truth of the Lord

Endures, His living word

For ever it be, ne'er does cease

Praise Him, the Lord of peace


This here a call to praise

Joyful songs, anthems raise

He Lord of all, Almighty be

Blessings has for you, see
