The Lord, My God, Be Praised
By: Johann Olearius

The Lord, my God, be praised,
My light, my life from heaven;
My maker, who to me
Has soul and body given;
My Father, who will shield
And keep me day by day
And make each moment yield
New blessings on my way.

The Lord, my God, be praised,
My trust, my life from heaven,
The Father’s own dear Son,
Whose life for me was given,
Who for my sin atoned
With his most precious blood
And gives to me by faith
The highest heavenly good.

The Lord, my God, be praised,
My hope, my light from heaven,
The Spirit, whom the Son
In love to me has given.
His grace revives my heart
And gives my spirit power,
Help, comfort, and support
In sorrow’s gloomy hour.

The Lord, my God, be praised,
My god, the ever living,
To whom the heavenly host
Their laud and praise are giving.
The Lord, my God, be praised,
In whose great name I boast,
God Father, God the Son,
And God the Holy Ghost.
