Praise Plenitudes



Tune: Cruger

('Hail to the Lord's Anointed')

*******

Psalm 146 v.5-6

Happy who have God's help, they

Hope in Him, watch and pray

He God who earth, heaven made

His creation arrayed

With all His several beauties

Which wondering eyes may see

He keeps the truth for ever

Deceives and lies never

 

Psalm 147 v.7-8

Sing praises with thanksgiving

To Him your worship bring

Play on harps, all instruments

With whole and good intents

He covers heavens with clouds

Rain clouds give darkness shrouds

Waters the earth, the sunshine

Gives warmth and brightness fine

 

Psalm 148 v.11-13

Praise the Lord, all things living

A song and tribute bring

Kings of the earth, all people

Turn to Him, on Him call

Young men and maidens, old too

Children, women, anew

Praise His name, it excellent

He blessings us has sent

 

Psalm 145 v.4-5

One generation shall speak

To another one, meek

Shall declare His strength mighty

His strength true, bold, and free

And speak of His great honour

Hearts, minds, and spirits stir

To tell of your majesty

And your works wondrous be

 

Psalm 150

Praise, praise Him all that has breath

He Lord o'er life and death

Exultant voices ringing

Join in all, everything

Make sound of music joyful

His love, mercies, recall

His grace and every good thing

With myriad angels sing

        Thanks Fred. Well, there's not myriads of me singing. It would be torture! lol.
