Lyrics of Text

I will extol you, my God, and my King;
I will bless your name for ever.

Everyday I will bless You, Lord;
I will praise your name for ever.
Great is the Lord and worthy of high praise;
God's grandeur is beyond understanding.
(I will extol you ...)

Praise the Lord, my soul.
I shall praise the Lord all my life.
Sing praise to my God while I live.
Put no trust in princes,
In mere mortals, powerless to save.
(I will extol you ...)

How good to celebrate our God in song;
How sweet to give fitting praise.
The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem;
Gathers the dispersed of Israel.
(I will extol you ...)

Praise to the Father, to the Son,
And to the Holy Spirit for ever,
As it was in the beginning
Now and ever shall be.

Amen, Amen for ever.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.
(I will extol you ...)
