Praise Jesus, reigning now on Earth,
High-seated on the throne;
Praise Him who grants us second birth,
Then takes us for His own.
Though weary in our earthly life,
Now we have been set free;
Freed from our troubles, toil and strife,
Now thus will ever be.
So now we sing eternal praise,
To Christ who is our King;
Rejoice and worship all our days,
To Him our tributes bring.
Praise Him below, Praise Him above,
Our songs of joy we’ll sing;
We’ll praise God’s everlasting love,
Praise Jesus Christ, our King!
