1. Chorus (S, A, T, B)
Give laud and praise the highest good,
The Father of all kindness,
The God who ev'ry wonder works,
The God who doth my spirit
With his rich consolation fill,
The God who makes all sorrow still.
Give to our God all honor!

2. Recit. (B)
To thee give thanks the heav'nly host,
O ruler o'er all thrones,(1) thou,
And those on earth and air and sea,
Within thy shadow dwelling,
These honor thy creative pow'r,
Which all things hath so well designed.
Give to our God all honor!

3. Aria (T)
Whate'er our God created hath,
This, too, would he keep safely;
O'er all this shall he morn and night
With his dear grace be master.
Within his kingdom far and wide
Are all things just and all things fair.
Give to our God all honor!

4. Chorale (S, A, T, B)
I called to God in my distress:
Ah Lord, pay heed my crying!
Then saved my Savior me from death
And let my comfort flourish.
My thanks, O God, my thanks to thee;
Ah thank ye, thank ye God with me!
Give to our God all honor!

5. Recit. (A)
The Lord is not and never was
From his own people severed;
He bideth e'er their confidence,
Their blessing, peace, and rescue;
With mother's hands he leadeth sure
His people ever here and there.
Give to our God all honor!
