1 O praise our God to-day,
His constant mercy bless,
Whose love hath helped me on our way,
And granted us success.

2 His arm the strength imparts
Our daily toil to bear;
His grace alone inspires our hearts
Each other's load to share.

3 O happiest work below,
Earnest of joy above,
To sweeten a cup of woe
By deeds of holy love!

4 Lord, may it be our choice
This blessed rule to keep,
"Rejoice with them that do rejoice,
And week with them that weep."

5 O praise our God to-day,
His constant mercy bless,
Whose love has helped us on our way,
And granted us success.
