English Version

  • Praise Him, praise Him, Jesus our blessed Redeemer

Sing, O earth, His wonderful love proclaim

Hail Him! Hail Him! Highest archangels in glory

 Strength and honour give to His Holy name

Like a shepherd, Jesus will guard His children,

In His arms He carries them all day long

O ye saints that dwell on the mountain of Zion

Praise Him praise Him! Ever


In joyful song.

  • 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.

Loving Saviour, meekly enduring sorrow,

Crown’d with thorns that cruelly pierc’d His brow;

Once for us rejected, despis’d and forsaken

Prince of Glory, ever triumphant now

  • Praise Him, praise Him, Jesus our blessed Redeemer,

Heav’nly portals loud with hosannas ring;

Jesus Saviour, reigneth for ever and ever,

Crown Him, crown Him, Prophet and Priest and King! Death is vanquish’d Tell it with joy, ye faithful,

Where is now thy victory, boasting grave?

Jesus lives! no longer thy portals are cheerless,

Jesus lives, the mighty and strong to save.





–  Fanny Jane Crosby was born on March 24, 1820

–  Fanny Crosby was blind.  When she was six weeks old a slight cold caused inflammation of the eyes. Our usual doctor was away from home, so a stranger was called in. He recommended the use of hot poultices, which practically destroyed her  sight. When this sad calamity became known, the unfortunate man thought it best to leave the neighbourhood, and they  never heard of him again

-Fanny Crosby left the Institution for the Blind on March 2, 1858, and she was married the same year to Mr. Alexander Van Alstyne, who was also blind and whom she had known as pupil and teacher in the Institution for fifteen years
