Praise God, from whom all blessings flow

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!
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!

This doxology is very good and extols in praise the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But we can only praise God in a way acceptable to Him if we are born again into the family of God, having been justified by faith (Hebrews 11 verse 6, Romans 5 verse 1).

I've only been in Goose Bay, Labrador a little over a year. The church I attend here sings a mix of new contemporary worship songs & old hymns & choruses. I absolutely love this one. They sing it here so loud with such authority, like a proclamation, It gives you chill-bumps. I just love it. And I love the lyrics Hilary from the Bronx mentioned in her comments.

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

@Harold 10/16/2017 - You could share your writing on Facebook, or create your own website for them. You can download or reference the tunes from or from other web sources. I make songs of the Psalms. I've done about 60 of them. I post them on my website and when I make a new one, or one speaks to me, I share a link to it on Facebook.


This doxology has been sung more often in church services than any other song.

Thomas Ken was a bold, outspoken 17th century Anglican bishop. Ken's illustrious career in the State Church of England was stormy and colorful. Following ordination in 1662, he served as chaplain to the Bishop of Winchester. Several years later he was sent to Holland, where he was the English chaplain at the royal court of the Hague. But Chaplain Ken denounced so boldly the corrupt lives of those in authority in the Dutch capital that he was compelled to leave after just one year.

Upon his return to England, Ken was appointed to be the personal chaplain of King Charles II. Chaplain Ken continued the same spirit of boldly rebuking the sins of this pleasure-loving English monarch. Yet in spite of this practice, the king always admired his courageous, outspoken chaplain. He referred to him as the "good little man" and when it was chapel time King Charles would say, "Now I must go in and hear Ken tell me my faults."

Soon the King rewarded Thomas Ken by appointing him to be the Anglican bishop of the prestigious Bath and Wells area. But just 12 days after Thomas Ken was consecrated as a bishop, Charles II died and was succeeded by his Catholic brother, James II. Before long Bishop Ken angered the new monarch and was imprisoned in the infamous Tower of London.

Although Ken was eventually acquitted, he was removed from his high office of bishop and forced to spend the remaining years of his life in obscurity.

A noted historian has paid this tribute to the little bishop, "He came as near to the ideal of Christian perfection as human weakness permits." - '52 Hymn Stories Dramatized' by Kenneth W. Osbeck

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.
