1 Take heart and praise our God;
rejoice and clap your hands
his power our foe subdued,
his mercy ever stands:
let trumpets sound and people sing,
the Lord through all the earth is King!

2 Take heart, but sing with fear,
exalt his worthy name;
with mind alert and clear
now celebrate his fame:
Chorus

3 Take heart for future days,
for tasks as yet unknown
the God whose name we praise
is seated on the throne:
Chorus

4 Take heart and trust in God
the Father and the Son
God is our strength and shield,
his Spirit guides us on:
Chorus
