Redeemed Hymn 26 – Praise Ye The Lord, Tis Good To Raise

“Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God” Psalm 147:1

1 Praise ye the Lord! ‘Tis good to raise

Your hearts and voices in His praise:

His nature and His works invite

To make this duty our delight.


2 He formed the stars, those heavenly flames,

He counts their numbers, calls their names,

His wisdom’s vast, and knows no bound,

A deep where all our thoughts are drowned.


3 Sing to the Lord; exalt Him high,

Who spreads His clouds along the sky.

There He prepares the fruitful rain,

Nor lets the drops descend in vain.


4 He makes the grass the hills adorn,

And clothes the smiling fields with corn;

The beasts with food his hands supply,

And the young ravens when they cry.


5 What is the creature’s skill or force?

The sprightly man, or warlike horse?

The piercing wit, the active limb?

All are too mean delights for Him.


6 But saints are lovely in His sight,

He views His children with delight;

He sees their hope, He knows their fear,

And looks and loves His image there.
