Praise Him! Praise Him!

This delightful hymn which is another of my favourites, first appeared in 1869, in a hymn book entitled Bright Jewels, by William Bradbury, Howard Doane, William Sherwin & Chester Allen (New York: Big­low & Main, 1869). It has stood the test of time, and is still popular today, amongst many of Fanny Crosby’s hymns.

I will be focusing on hymns by Fanny Crosby for this two weeks.

Lyrics: Fanny J. Crosby
Music: Chester Allen

Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
Sing, O Earth, His wonderful love proclaim!
Hail Him! hail Him! highest archangels in glory;
Strength and honor give to His holy Name!
Like a shepherd, Jesus will guard His children,
In His arms He carries them all day long:

Praise Him! Praise Him!
Tell of His excellent greatness.
Praise Him! Praise Him!
Ever in joyful song!

Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
For our sins He suffered, and bled, and died.
He our Rock, our hope of eternal salvation,
Hail Him! hail Him! Jesus the Crucified.
Sound His praises! Jesus who bore our sorrows,
Love unbounded, wonderful, deep and strong.

Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
Heav’nly portals loud with hosannas ring!
Jesus, Savior, reigneth forever and ever.
Crown Him! Crown Him! Prophet, and Priest, and King!
Christ is coming! over the world victorious,
Pow’r and glory unto the Lord belong.
