Praise To The Lord, The Almighty : About

This famous and much-loved hymn of praise is set to the anonymous German tune ‘Lobe Den Herren’ from the 1668 hymnal Praxis Pietatis Melica. The words were written by prominent German Reformed hymnwriter Joachim Neander (1650-1680) and draw inspiration from Psalm 103 and Psalm 150 in particular but are inspired wholly by themes of praise recurring across the Psalms. Catherine Winkworth (1827-1878), a hymnwriter in her own right as well as translator, provided the English translation of this hymn in 1863. The hymn is noteworthy for its distinctive “galloping” metre, with 14 syllables in the opening lines of each verse.

Praise To The Lord, The Almighty : Lyrics

1. Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!
O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near;
Praise Him in glad adoration.

2. Praise to the Lord, who over all things so wondrously reigneth,
Shieldeth thee gently from harm, or when fainting sustaineth:
Hast thou not seen how thy heart’s wishes have been
Granted in what He ordaineth?

3. Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,
If to the end He befriend thee.

4. Praise to the Lord, O let all that is in me adore Him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before Him.
Let the Amen sound from His people again,
Gladly for aye we adore Him.
