1 Praise him! praise him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!

Hail him! hail him! highest archangels in glory,
Strength and honor give to his holy name!
Like a shepherd, Jesus will guard his children -
In his arms he carries them all day long:

Refrain:
Praise him! praise him! tell of his excellent greatness!
Praise him! praise him! ever in joyful song!

2 Praise him! praise him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
For our sins he suffered and bled and died;
He our Rock, our hope of eternal salvation,
Hail him! hail him! Jesus the Crucified!
Sound his praises - Jesus who bore our sorrows -
Love unbounded, wonderful, deep and strong: [Refrain]

3 Praise him! praise him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
Heav'nly portals loud with hosannas ring!
Jesus, Savior, reigneth for ever and ever,
Crown him! crown him! Prophet and Priest and King!
Christ is coming, over the world victorious -
Pow'r and glory unto the Lord belong: [Refrain]

The Story Behind Praise Him Praise Him

Frances Jane Crosby was born in Putnam County, New York, March 24, 1820. She was afflicted with blindness at the age of six weeks from maltreatment of her eyes during a time of illness. When she was eight years old she moved with her parents to Ridgefield, Connecticut, the family remaining there four years. At the age of fifteen, she enrolled the New York Institution for the Blind, where she obtained a great education. She became a teacher at the school in 1847 and resumed her work until March 1858. She taught English grammar, rhetoric and American history. She then started to write Sunday-school hymns for Wm. B. Bradbury in 1864. 

She knew a great many portions of the Bible by heart, and had committed to memory the first four books of the Old Testament, and also the four Gospels before she was ten years of age.

Her range of topics was broad, including everything from a pondering of heaven, as in "The Bright Forever" and "The Blessed Homeland", to a consideration to the labor of this world, as in "To the Work" and "Rescue the Perishing."
