Author: Mark H. Forscutt
Praise the Lord with songs of gladness,
Praises sing to God most high;
Buried be each thought of sadness,
Hushed be each complaining sigh.
Praise Him for His love abounding,
Praise Him with the sweet-toned lyre;
Praise Him with the psaltery’s sounding,
Praise the Lord, ye saints and choir.
Praise Him now and praise Him forever,
Join with instrument and voice;
Praise the Father, praise the Savior,
Let the righteous all rejoice.
