Great Is the Lord

Hymns of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


With dignity

1. Great is the Lord; ’tis good to praise

His high and holy name.

Well may the Saints in latter days

His wondrous love proclaim.

2. The Comforter is sent again,

His pow’r the Church attends,

And with the faithful will remain

Till Jesus Christ descends.

3. We’ll praise him for a prophet’s voice,

His people’s steps to guide;

In this we do and will rejoice,

Tho all the world deride.

4. To praise him let us all engage,

For unto us is giv’n

To live in this momentous age

And share the light of heav’n.
