165. 8s. & 7s. M. Fawcett. God of our Salvation.
1 Praise to thee, thou great Creator;
Praise be thine from every tongue;
Join, my soul, with every creature,
Join the universal song.
2 Father, source of all compassion,
Free, unbounded grace is thine:
Hail the God of our salvation;
Praise him for his love divine.
3 For ten thousand blessings given,
For the hope of future joy,
Sound his praise through earth and heaven,
Sound Jehovah's praise on high.
4 Joyfully on earth adore him,
'Till in heaven our song we raise;
There, enraptured, fall before him,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.
