What is the name of this hymn and where can I listen to it?

Praise be to thee O Lord,
King of Glory everlasting.
The Lord doth reign
Let the earth rejoice.


That's all I remember. It is a beautiful hymn sung by the choir of our grade school Catholic church.

Hi Gidge Cole,

I could not find a recording but I found these lyrics here:
http://jmjsite.com/hymn-christtheking.pdf
( Scroll to K3 - Praise Be To Thee, O Lord - 94M.M. )
Are these the lyrics you remember?

PRAISE BE TO THEE, O LORD

Praise be to thee O Lord,
King of Glory everlasting.
The Lord doth reign
Let the earth rejoice.

Sing joyfully unto the Lord our King
Let the sea be moved and the fulness thereof
The mountains shall rejoice at presence of the Lord
Sing joyfully to God all the earth
Sing, rejoice and give praise

Chorus
Sing and rejoice. Sing and give praise
Sing upon His starry throne. Praise ye Him
Praise bee to Thee O Lord King of glory everlasting
Amen. Amen

i have been looking for this since high school graduation (1951) I think I have all the words written down, but I thought maybe it was my imagination since no one knew what I was talking about. If anyone cares, some of the rest is: Sing joyfully to the Lord Our King. Let the sea be moved and the fullness thereof. The mountains shall rejoice in the glory of our King. Sing and rejoice. Sing and give praise. Sing ye, rejoice, and give praise. I have more written down, but not sure where it is after all these years. Thanks for this page.

Thank you, Nancy

I do appreciate more of the lyrics
and your personal input
The Internet is a wonderful tool
to search out these songs from our youth.

Lord bless you
