Long as I live I’ll bless thy name,
     My King, my God of love;

Long as I live I’ll bless thy name,
     My King, my God of love;
My work and joy shall be the same
     In the bright world above.

Great is the Lord, his power unknown,
     And let his praise be great;
I’ll sing the honors of thy throne,
     Thy works of grace repeat.

Thy grace shall dwell upon my tongue;
     And while my lips rejoice,
The men that hear my sacred song
     Shall join their cheerful voice.

Fathers to sons shall teach thy name,
     And children learn thy ways;
Ages to come thy truth proclaim,
     And nations sound thy praise.

Thy glorious deeds of ancient date
     Shall through the world be known;
Thine arm of power, thy heav’nly state,
     With public splendor shown.

The world is managed by thy hands,
     Thy saints are ruled by love;
And thine eternal kingdom stands,
     Though rocks and hills remove.

~ Isaac Watts
