For Unison and Piano - A hymn-anthem on the tune, Lauda Anima. Usually, treatments of this hymn are big and bombastic, but Rachel has written a beautifully meditative setting. Your singers already know the tune, so this is easily put together on a Sunday morning!
Praise, my soul, the King of heaven;
to his feet thy tribute bring;
ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
evermore his praises sing:
Praise the everlasting King.
Praise him for his grace and favor
to our fathers in distress;
praise him still the same for ever,
slow to chide and swift to bless:
Glorious in his faithfulness.
Father-like he tends and spares us;
well our feeble frame he knows;
in his hand he gently bears us, rescues us from all our foes.
Widely yet his mercy flows.
Angels, help us to adore him;
ye behold him face to face;
sun and moon, bow down before him,
dwellers all in time and space.
Praise with us the God of grace.
