I will extol Thee, my King!
Thy holiness proclaim;
And earth with ev’ry voice shall sing,
The glories of Thy name.
Thy tender mercies brightly shine,
Immortal is Thy pow’r;
Thy love a beaming ray divine,
That lights each passing hour.
The mem’ry of Thy goodness still
Shall grateful hearts pervade;
Thy majesty and glory will
For ever be displayed.
The eyes all shall wait on Thee,
For perfect are Thy ways;
And pious hearts united be,
O Maker! in Thy praise.
