Original text and translations

1. Praise to God, the great Creator,
Bounteous source of all our joy,
He whose hand upholds all nature,
He whose nod can all destroy;
Saints, with pious zeal attending,
Now the grateful tribute raise;
Solemn songs to heaven ascending,
Join the universal praise.

 

2. Round his awful footstool kneeling,
Lowly bend with contrite souls;
Here, His milder grace revealing,
Here, His wrath no thunder rolls;
Lo, the eternal page before us
Bears the covenant of His love;
Full of mercy to restore us,
Mercy beaming from above.

 

3. Every secret fault confessing,
Deed unrighteous, thought of sin,
Seize, O seize the proffered blessing,
Grace from God and peace within:
Heart and voice with rapture swelling,
Still the song of glory raise;
On the theme immortal dwelling,
Join the universal praise.
