Give Praise to God 2nd Fret
Words and Music by Eva Zarley

In the early part of our marriage, I bought a book at the library in Corydon, IN, the nearest "big" city where we lived, for 10 cents. It was a Merlin Carothers book on the power of praise. We "ate it up" so to speak and not too long after that, Eva was blessed with a rush of words and melody all at once. Here is "Give Praise to God."

F|or the brilliance of a flower’s| hue, give praise to |God
For the freshness of the ear|ly dew, give pra|ise to G|od
When the sunshine is up|on your face
And a co|ol breeze blesses y|ou with grace
All the ear|th seems a lovely pl|ace, give pr|aise to G|od

He knows what will wo|rk out best and the out|come of ev|ery test
You m|ay feel cursed or you m|ay feel blessed,
But it a|ll works for your g|ood
Whether |in the dark or |in the light
He makes ev|erything turn |out all right
We can’t cha|nge a thing in o|ur own might
So let’s tru|st Him |as we sh|ould
R|ejoi|ce-- for He do|es all |things |well!

F|or the burning pain of fir|e’s flame, give pr|aise to |God
For the need to call on Je|sus’ name, give |praise to |God
When injustice steals your ho|pe of gain
And there se|ems to be no quen|ching rain
All the wor|ld gives is end|less pain, give pr|aise to G|od (Chorus)

For the things that you are going through, give praise to God
For the sorrow and the joy in you, give praise to God
Let our God be ever thanked and praised
Never fail to let your voice be raised
In the end you will stand amazed, give praise to God (Chorus)
