     7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise. 8 Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early. 9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations. 10 For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds. 11 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth.(KJV)

1. Oh that I had a thousand voices 
To praise my God with thousand tongues! 
My heart, which in the Lord rejoices, 
Would then proclaim in grateful songs 
To all, wherever I might be, 
What great things God hath done for me. 

2. O all ye powers that He implanted, 
Arise, and silence keep no more; 
Put forth the strength that He hath granted, 
Your noblest work is to adore. 
O soul and body, be ye meet 
With heartfelt praise your Lord to greet! 

3. Ye forest leaves so green and tender, 
That dance for joy in summer air; 
Ye meadow grasses, bright and slender; 
Ye flowers so wondrous sweet and fair; 
Ye live to show His praise alone, 
With me now make His glory known. 

4. All creatures that have breath and motion, 
That throng the earth, the sea, the sky, 
Now join me in my heart’s devotion, 
Help me to raise His praises high, 
My utmost powers can ne’er aright 
Declare the wonders of His might. 

5. Lord, I will tell, while I am living, 
Thy goodness forth with every breath 
And greet each morning with thanksgiving 
Until my heart is still in death; 
Yea, when at last my lips grow cold, 
Thy praise shall in my sighs be told. 

6. O Father, deign Thou, I beseech Thee, 
To listen to my earthly lays; 
A nobler strain in heaven shall reach Thee, 
When I with angels hymn Thy praise 
And learn amid their choirs to sing 
Loud hallelujahs to my King.
