We Bless The Lord The Great The Good
We bless the Lord, the great, the good,
Who fills our hearts with joy and food;
Who pours his blessings from the skies,
And loads our Days with rich supplies.
He sends the sun his circuit round,
To cheer the fruits, to warm the ground;
In plenteous drops of genial rain
Revives the grass and swells the grain.
His bounteous hand, Great Spring of Good,
Provides the whole creation food;
He ever gives, yet still has more;
His gifts can ne’er decrease his store.
We bless the Lord, who reigns above,
Whose thoughts are kind, whose name is love;
Whose bounty through creation flows,
And life and bless on all bestows.
O let our souls with joy record
The pow’r and goodness of the Lord;
How great his works, how kind his ways!
Let ev’ry tongue pronounce his praise.
