Another one hereSwitching lyrics and melodies.

I know I mentioned it in one of these other threads, but a beautiful "switch" [from Garrison Keillor's high school days] is this:

Tune: Hernando's Hideaway

Praise God
from whom
all blessings flow.
Praise Him,
all crea-

Praise him
Above,
Ye heav'nly hosts.
Praise fa-
ther, son and
Holy Ghost! Olé!
