Praise God, from whom all blessings flow

1
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heav'nly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
2
Praise God the Father who's the source;
Praise God the Son who is the course;
Praise God the Spirit who's the flow;
Praise God, our portion here below!

Through the years when I went to church I always find words to change in the songs. Even Rock and roll songs country etc I've always been able to give then words. I believe it's a gift I've been given but I've never done anything with it. Like praise God from whom all blessings flow praise Him from this church here below. Any ideas on how I can put this gift into action? I cannot sing or write music for that matter but I can find the words each and every single time. I can hear it all in my mind as well and its always been extremely frustrating. Anyway any suggestions I'd appreciate. Thank you.

The Unitarian Church sings this:

From all that dwell below the skies

Let faith and hope with love arise

Let beauty, truth, and good be sung

Through every land by every tongue

I just love the song, it's meaning and how it makes me want to love this Great and Mercyful God more and more. This song easily put me in the mood of prayer and come to God with a heart of thanksgiving. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!!

This lovely benediction has been used at my church-house since I was little... I love it.. On Christmas Eve this year, and during Midnight Mass no less....... Another lost soul came home... Father officially opened the doors wide so, that we BOTH saw it. I'm so proud of him and happy The Good Lord Blessed Him with the light of truth and peace and sanctity and peace... AMEN to you all. and Praise Be To God In The Highest!!! * Bows respectfully three times *

My mother's family sang the first verse of this as a prayer before every meal when we got the family together for holidays. My father would play the piano. It has been decades since I sang this, and wanted to sing it to my newborn son as a prayer when he was in the hospital for his first 10 days (he was born 5 weeks early). I just couldn't remember all the lines. Thank you so much for posting this family tradition so I can revive it and pass it to my son!

This was written as the Ottoman Turks were invading Central Europe. I see this prayer as a confirmation of total faith in The Trinity, that would later come to fruition in victory.

On March 14, 1744, Charles Wesley was preaching in an old upper room in Leed, Yorkshire, England. He recorded in his diary: "The floor gave way. I lost my senses for a moment, but recovered, and was filled with power from above. I cried out: 'Fear not, the Lord is with us, and we are all safe!' Then I began singing, 'Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow.' I lifted up the fallen as fast as I could. Several were hurt, but none were killed." It was one of the most serious accidents of Charles Wesley's life. He escaped with a bruised hand and some skin rubbed off his head.

John Wesley gives this touching incident in his Journal for March 19, 1769. Elizabeth Oldham, the wife of one of his preachers, told him this incident at Chester. In her mother's last moments she said, "Call my son to see me die." He asked, "have you any fear of death?" She replied, "Oh, no, that is gone long since. Perfect love casts out fear. Do you not see Him? There He is! Waiting to receive my soul!" Then she sang with a clear voice, 'Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow.' She ended her song and her last breath together.

Bishop Ken died at the age of 74, March 17, 1711. He had asked that his body be carried to its resting place by 6 of the poorest men in his parish. And so it was; each of the men receiving 10 shillings for the day, which was more than most of them received in a week of hard labor. - Hymn Stories by Wilbur Konkel
