Praise the Redeemer (New Hope) 555

Tune: Alfred Marcus Cagle, 1908; Arranged by Thomas Jefferson Allen, 1927
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1719 (Verses); Thomas Ken, 1697 (Chorus)
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
From all that dwell below the skies,
Let the Redeemer's praise arise,
Let the Creator's name be sung,
Thro' ev'ry land by ev'ry tongue.


Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him all creatures here below,
Praise Him above, ye heav'nly host,
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Eternal are Thy mercies, Lord,
Eternal truth attends Thy word;
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
'Till suns shall rise and set no more.

T. J. Allen dated his arrangement of New Hope from the Denson Revision April 30, 1927, at Troy, Alabama.
