Praise Jesus Christ the Lord;
Praise God, the Lord of Hosts;
Praise the Spirit of the Heavenly Host:
For God tends to his people;
By our very lives, he does;
Through grace unfounded
And mercy divine, he does.
The calamities of the world,
The creatures of the dark night,
The manifold angels among us,
Resound: Praise be to God!
By all the majesty of light,
Through the fire of dawn
And the embers of dusk
His hand wields the world!
Sin is blotted out for Truth;
Empty souls are fitted with Life;
The dire are emptied of their dearth
And every sickness ends!
We are a noble people, it is sure;
We are a redeeming and soulful people
Made righteous by the King of Kings;
We are the work of his hands!
The day is coming, heralds the choir
When every fashioned thing of Life
Renews within Him, and together
Glorify; together shout his name: Hosanna!
Praise to Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior!
Praise to God the Father, God of all Creation!
Praise to the Spirit of the Living World!
Praise to all the good creation!
And the people say:
Thanks be to God. Amen.
