Praise God, from Whom All Blessings Flow

Song lyrics to Praise God, from Whom All Blessings Flow by Thomas Ken

A doxology in widespread use, in some Protestant traditions commonly referred to simply as The Doxology or The Common Doxology, begins Praise God, from whom all blessings flow.

These words were written in 1674 by Thomas Ken as the final verse of two hymns, Awake, my soul, and with the sun and Glory to thee, my God, this night, intended for morning and evening worship at Winchester College. This final verse, separated from its proper hymns and sung to the tune “Old 100th”, “Duke Street”, “Lasst uns erfreuen”, “The Eighth Tune” by Thomas Tallis, among others, frequently marks the dedication of alms or offerings at Sunday worship. The popular Hawaiian version Hoʻonani i ka Makua mau was translated by Hiram Bingham I and is published in hymnals. Many Mennonite congregations sing a longer and more embellished setting of this text known as “Dedication Anthem” by Samuel Stanley.

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!

Praise God the Father who”s the source;
Praise God the Son who is the course;
Praise God the Spirit who”s the flow;
Praise God, our portion here below!
