Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
I will bless the Lord and give Him glory,
O, I will bless His name and give Him glory.

1  The Lord is gracious and merciful
Great in kindness and good to all
The Lord is righteous in all His ways
Bless the Lord and give Him praise.

2: He's near to all, who will call on Him.
And loves the righteous, who fear His name.
He'll reign forever as Lord and King.
Lift your voice with praise and sing.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY I will bless the Lord and give Him glory,
O, I will bless His name and give Him glory.

The Lord is gracious and merciful
Great in kindness and good to all
The Lord is righteous in all His ways
Bless the Lord and give Him praise.

2: He's near to all, who will call on Him.
And loves the righteous, who fear His name.
He'll reign forever as Lord and King.
Lift your voice with praise and sing.
