Sing Praise to God Who Reigns Above ~ Hymn

Sing Praise to God Who Reigns Above

Sing praise to God Who reigns above, the God of all creation,
The God of power, the God of love, the God of our salvation.
With healing balm my soul is filled and every faithless murmur stilled:
To God all praise and glory.

What God’s almighty power hath made His gracious mercy keepeth,
By morning glow or evening shade His watchful eye ne’er sleepeth;
Within the kingdom of His might, Lo! all is just and all is right:
To God all praise and glory.

The Lord is never far away, but through all grief distressing,
An ever present help and stay, our peace and joy and blessing.
As with a mother’s tender hand, God gently leads the chosen band:
To God all praise and glory.

Thus, all my toilsome way along, I sing aloud Thy praises,
That earth may hear the grateful song my voice unwearied raises.
Be joyful in the Lord, my heart, both soul and body bear your part:
To God all praise and glory.

Let all who name Christ’s holy Name give God all praise and glory;
Let all who own His power proclaim aloud the wondrous story!
Cast each false idol from its throne, for Christ is Lord, and Christ alone:
To God all praise and glory.

Words by Johann J. Schutz 1675

  1. Good morning again Ellen B.,

    I hope you have a lovely Sunday and a wonderful celebration with your mom. She is just so darling!!

    This is such a perfect hymn for Mother’s Day…As with a mother’s tender hand, God gently leads the chosen band:
    To God all praise and glory.

    Have a blessed Mother’s Day!!

    🙂 Cori G.

  2. Great to see Johann Schutz’s hymn (at least, the English translation by Frances Cox). Very good hymn, but not found in many hymnals today, and as a result, seldom used in most denominations. It might make a good hymn to sing on Thanksgiving Sunday. (In Canada, our Thanksgiving comes up in 2 1/2 weeks.)
