1  Sing to the great Jehovah’s praise!
All praise to him belongs,
Who kindly lengthens out our days,
Demands our choicest songs:
Whose providence has brought us through
Another various year;
We all with vows and anthems new
Before our God appear.

2  Father, thy mercies past we own,
Thy still-continued care,
To thee presenting through thy Son
Whate'er we have, or are.
Our lips and lives shall gladly shew
The wonders of thy love,
While on in Jesu’s steps we go
To see thy face above.

3  Our residue of days or hours
Thine, wholly thine shall be,
And all our consecrated pow'rs
A sacrifice to thee;
Till Jesus in the clouds appear
To saints on earth forgiv'n,
And bring the grand sabbatic year,
The jubilee of heav'n.
