|Text:||Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven (Psalm 103)|
|Author:||Henry Francis Lyte|
1 Praise, my soul, the King of heaven;
to his feet your tribute bring;
ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
evermore his praises sing:
Praise the everlasting King.
2 Praise him for his grace and favor
to his people in distress;
praise him still the same as ever,
slow to chide, and swift to bless:
Glorious in his faithfulness.
3 Fatherlike, he tends and spares us;
well our feeble frame he knows;
in his hands he gently bears us,
rescues us from all our foes.
Widely yet his mercy flows.
4 Angels, help us to adore him;
you behold him face to face.
Sun and moon, bow down before him,
dwellers all in time and space:
Praise with us the God of grace.

This free paraphrase of Psalm 103 gains much energy and conviction by including the double “Alleluia!” before the ﬁnal line of text. That repeated four-note ﬁgure descending from the tune’s highest note gives voice to the praise that the rest of the hymn evokes.
