Hymns of My Youth II: Give Praise to God

The first Hymns of My Youth series took us through the Concordia hymnal, which was the primary hymnal of the churches in which I was raised. In that series, I limited myself, with few exceptions, to hymns that I actually remembered singing during that time. This second series will use one of the secondary hymnals of those churches, Great Hymns of the Faith, and I’m going to include hymns that I learned on my own, as I perused the hymnal alone or with friends. This is one of those.


Sing Praise to God Who Reigns Above

Sing praise to God Who reigns above,
The God of all creation,
The God of power, the God of love,
The God of our salvation.
With healing balm my soul He fills,
And every faithless murmur stills:
To God all praise and glory.

What God’s almighty power hath made
His gracious mercy keepeth,
By morning glow or evening shade
His watchful eye ne’er sleepeth;
Within the kingdom of His might,
Lo! all is just and all is right:
To God all praise and glory.

The Lord is never far away,
But through all grief distressing,
An ever present help and stay,
Our peace and joy and blessing.
As with a mother’s tender hand,
He leads His own, His chosen band:
To God all praise and glory.

Thus, all my toilsome way along,
I sing aloud Thy praises,
That earth may hear the grateful song
My voice unwearied raises.
Be joyful in the Lord, my heart!
Both soul and body bear your part:
To God all praise and glory.

Great Hymns of the Faith (Zondervan, 1968).
