1 Praise our God with shouts of joy,
sing the glory of his name;
join to lift his praises high,
through the world his love proclaim.
2 Come and see what God has done
by the power of his right hand;
see the battles he has won
by his word of swift command.
3 God has tamed the raging seas,
carved a highway through the tide,
paid the cost of our release,
come himself to be our guide.
4 God has put us to the test,
bringing us through flood and fire,
into freedom, peace and rest,
for our good is his desire.
5 He has not despised my prayer
nor kept back his love from me;
he has raised me from despair
to our God all glory be!
