, 5


1. Great is the Lord; ’tis good to praiseHis high and holy name:Well may the Saints in latter daysHis wondrous love proclaim.
2. To praise Him let us all engage,That unto us is givenTo live in this momentous age,And share the light of heaven.
3. We’ll praise Him for our happy lotOn this much favored land,Where truth and righteousness are taughtBy His divine command.
4. We’ll praise Him for more glorious thingsThan language can express;The “Everlasting Gospel” bringsThe humble soul to bliss.
5. The Comforter is sent again;His power the Church attends,And with the faithful will remainTill Jesus Christ descends.
6. We’ll praise Him for a Prophet’s voice,His people’s steps to guide;In this we do and will rejoice,Though all the world deride.
7. Praise Him! the time, the chosen timeTo favor Zion’s come;And all the Saints from every climeWill soon be gathered home.
8. The opening seals announce the day,By prophets long declared,When all, in one triumphant lay,Will join to praise the Lord.
