From the Rising of the Sun to Going Down of the Same (The Name of God)

This short chorus about praising God all day long is based on Psalm 113:3 and Malachi 1:11.

The earliest publication which was been located is Let's Just Praise the Lord, published by the Community Church in Maadi, Egypt in 1978.  The next located version is in Scripture in Song - Songs of Praise Volume I, by Scripture in Song, New Zealand in 1979.  This book attributed both the words and music to American evangelical guitarist, song-writer and worship leader, Paul S Deming, while later publications usually only attribute the tune to him.

With irregular meter, the tune is usually called RISING SUN - although like many hymns of this nature, there are a number of subtle (and not-so-subtle) variations on the tune in common use.  The Scripture in Song publication has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of G, the first few notes of the melody are GA B G FA_ G with accompanying chords C / D / G / D.

Lyrics

From the rising of the Sun
To the going down, of the same
The Lord’s name is to be praised.
From the rising of the Sun
To the going down, of the same
The Lord’s name is to be praised.

Chorus:
Praise ye the Lord
Praise him all you servants of the Lord
Praise the name of the Lord.

Blessed be the name of the lord.
From this time forth,
And for evermore.
Blessed be the name of the lord.
From this time forth,
And for evermore.
