2. Give Thanks and Sing

1 Give thanks and sing unto the Lord our God
Sweep, sweep the harp in notes of sweet devotion;
Tell of His grace, and spread His name abroad,
Great are His works in sky and air and ocean.

Refrain:
Praise ye the Lord! Give thanks and sing;
Tell of His love to ev’ry land and nation,
Praise ye the Lord, give thanks and sing,
Praise Him forever, who bringeth salvation.

2 Give thanks and sing, He made the day and night;
Sunbeams of joy that brightly sparkle round us;
Hopes, like the stars, to shed their golden light,
Till some glad morn His mercy shall have crowned us. [Refrain]

3 Give thanks and sing; Hs wondrous deeds recount;
Let lips and lives unceasing praises render;
On wings of love our souls shall heav’nward mount
Till on our view shall break the City’s splendor. [Refrain]
