Praise the Lord (Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Praise the Lord.

"Let us exalt his name together." (Psalm34,3)

  1. Praise the Lord,
     Christ THE WORD,
praise his name for ever dear;
     his is love
     far above
all we know, or can know here. PDF - Midi

  2. He it was
     bore the cross,
all its pain, and all its shame;
     and for us,
     died he thus,
praise we then his glorious name.

  3. 'Tis a name
     marked with shame,
here below it ever was;
     but above,
     all is love,
love to him who bore the cross.

  4. There's a race
      saved by grace,
here below, who love his name;
     theirs it is,
     theirs, as his,
theirs to meet reproach and shame.

  5. Shrink we not,
     base the thought,
shrink we not from human scorn;
     'tis our lot,
     grieve we not,
sing ye, who of God are born.

  6. Yet a while,
     and his smile,
his whose coming draweth near,
     will repay,
     well it may,
all his people suffer here.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 236.
