-Praise Ye The Lord!

Praise Ye The Lord!

“Praise ye the Lord,” again, again,

The Spirit strikes the chord;

Nor toucheth He our hearts in vain,

We praise, we praise the Lord.

“Rejoice in Him,” again, again,

The Spirit speaks the word,

And faith takes up the happy strain;

Our joy is in the Lord.

“Stand fast in Christ,” ah! yet again

He teacheth all the band;

If human efforts are in vain,

In Christ it is we stand.

“Clean every whit,” Thou saidst it, Lord!

Shall one suspicion lurk?

Thine, surely, is a faithful word,

And Thine a finished work.

For ever be the glory given

To Thee, O Lamb of God!

Our every joy on earth, in heaven,

We owe it to Thy blood.
By Mary Bowley (1813-1856)
