Psalm 113:2
"Blessed be the name of the LORD
from this time forth and for evermore."

divider

          All praise to Him Who reigns above,
          In majesty supreme,
          Who gave His Son for man to die,
          That He might man redeem!

            Chorus
            Blessed be the Name!  Blessed be the Name!
            Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
            Blessed be the Name!  Blessed be the Name!
            Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

          His Name above all names shall stand,
          Exalted more and more,
          At God the Father's own right hand,
          Where angel hosts adore.

            Chorus
            Blessed be the Name!  Blessed be the Name!
            Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
            Blessed be the Name!  Blessed be the Name!
            Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

          Redeemer, Savior, Friend of man,
          Once ruined by the fall,
          Thou hast devised salvation's plan,
          For Thou hast died for all.

            Chorus
            Blessed be the Name!  Blessed be the Name!
            Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
            Blessed be the Name!  Blessed be the Name!
            Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

          His Name shall be the Counselor,
          The mighty Prince of Peace,
          Of all earth's kingdoms Conqueror,
          Whose reign shall never cease.

            Chorus
            Blessed be the Name!  Blessed be the Name!
            Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
            Blessed be the Name!  Blessed be the Name!
            Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
