I Will Extol You O My God

Hymn lyrics to I Will Extol You O My God, written by Arthur Seymour Sullivan, based on Psalm 145

I Will Extol You, O My God,
And Praise You, O My King;
Yes, Every Day And Evermore
Your Praises I Will Sing.
Great Is The LORD, Our Mighty God,
And Greatly To Be Praised;
His Greatness Is Unsearchable,
Above All Glory Raised.

Each Generation To The Next
Shall Testimony Bear,
And To Your Praise, From Age To Age,
Your Wondrous Acts Declare.
Upon Your Glorious Majesty
And Honor I Will Dwell,
And All Your Grand And Glorious Works
And Greatness I Will Tell.

Your Mighty Acts And Glorious Deeds
We Shall With Awe Confess.
Your Goodness We Will Celebrate
And Sign Your Righteousness.
Most Gracious And Compassionate
Is God, Who Reigns Above;
His Wrath Is Ever Slow To Rise,
Unbounded Is His Love.

Psalm 145

I will exalt you, my God the King;
    I will praise your name for ever and ever.
Every day I will praise you
    and extol your name for ever and ever.

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
    his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
    they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
    and I will meditate on your wonderful works.[b]
They tell of the power of your awesome works—
    and I will proclaim your great deeds.
They celebrate your abundant goodness
    and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
    slow to anger and rich in love.

The Lord is good to all;
    he has compassion on all he has made.
10 All your works praise you, Lord;
    your faithful people extol you.
11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom
    and speak of your might,
12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts
    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
    and your dominion endures through all generations.

The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises
    and faithful in all he does.[c]
14 The Lord upholds all who fall
    and lifts up all who are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all look to you,
    and you give them their food at the proper time.
16 You open your hand
    and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
