1 Praise to the Lord, the one true God -
the Father, Spirit, Son;
the God of gods, the Lord of lords,
revealed as Three in One.

2 Praise for this planet where we live,
its beauty and its form,
the sun and rain, the mountain, plain,
the sunset and the dawn.

3 Praise for salvation - gift of God,
salvation - full and free;
the cross of Christ! Love's sacrifice!
God's gift to you and me.

4 Praise for repentance, faith and love -
God's gracious gifts within;
he opens eyes, our old self dies
and cleansed is all our sin.

5 Praise for the new life Jesus brings -
the gift of God's new day;
God's power shown! true freedom known! -
the freedom to obey.

6 Praise for the promises of God -
strong anchors for the soul;
rich nourishment, encouragement
to reach towards the goal.
