Praise we the Lord

Language: English

Praise we the Lord who made all beauty
For all our senses to enjoy.
Owe we our humble thanks and duty
That simple pleasures never cloy;
Praise we the Lord who made all beauty
For all our senses to enjoy.

Praise Him who makes our life a pleasure,
Sending us things which glad our eyes.
Thank Him who gives us welcome leisure
That in our heart sweet thoughts may rise;
Praise Him who makes our life a pleasure,
Sending us things which glad our eyes.

Praise Him who by a simple flower
Lifts up our hearts to things above;
Thank Him gives to each one power
To find a friend to know and love;
Praise Him who by a simple flower
Lifts up our hearts to things above.
