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!

We used to sing this song in my Congregationalist church when I was growing up. This morning, I couldn't remember all of the lyrics so I decided to look it up. Thanks for helping.

I was doing a journal about "Praise Before Victory", and the Lord gave me this doxology which I have sang at the Catholic school my sister and I went to and at Church too when we were old enough to go by ourselves. Praise is a perfect prayer as it comes from the heart. Try it and joy will flow thru your soul, body and spirit. God bless.

The other day my mind was a jumbled mess . I couldn't think of anything so I started asking the Holy Spirit to give to a song s d this is the one that came to mind. Sang it so many times in church as a child.

We called it Doxology.

Glad I finally looked up all the words again.

Our son, 8, sings this song over and over lately.

How precious is this song always yet, when sung from his sweet lips it seems even more precious. I am his early mother and adore him and find such joy in him singing. I can only imagine the joy the Lord takes in him.

I'm so thankful the Lord shares His love, joy and blessings with us.

I just woke up with this hymn on my mind. I'm so grateful for the Holy Spirit, My Best Friend, to have my thoughts centred on God, The Trinity. I love how helps us in all our infirmities. What a beautiful refreshing way to have my thoughts on him before all other requests/demands come rushing in. Secondly, it's so encouraging reading all your comments. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

Thank God for His spirit and comforter He left behind for us. I love this old hymn. We sang this everyday in class before the closing bell in my primary days in Benin City, Nigeria. Thank God for Christians schools.

Such a soul lifting song that acknowledges the Lord as the only source of blessing.

Formerly, God was outside of man and had nothing to do with man; there was a great distance between God and man. However, the Triune God desires to transmit Himself into us. In order for the Triune God to fulfill this desire, God the Father is the source, God the Son is the course, and God the Spirit is the flow (2 Cor. 13:14). This thought is expressed in the second stanza of a hymn in our hymnal: "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!" (Hymns, #8). The Spirit is revealed as the flow of the Trinity in Revelation 22:1. This verse says that the river of water of life, a symbol of the Spirit, proceeds out of the throne of God and of the Lamb in the middle of the street (cf. John 7:37-39). This indicates that the Spirit as the river of water of life flows and that this river has not only a source from which it flows but also a course, a way in which the source flows. In Revelation 22:1 the Triune God, the Divine Being, is portrayed as living water in three aspects: the source, the course, and the flow. God the Father is the source of the river of water of life, God the Son is the course of this river, and God the Spirit is the flow of the river. In the New Jerusalem the river of water of life spirals down from the throne in the middle of the golden street to water the whole city. This is a picture of the transmission of the Triune God as living water into the believers. When the Spirit as the flow comes to reach us, the entire Triune God is transmitted into us.
