Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow. This hymn's first verse words were written in 1674 by Thomas Ken (July 1637 – 19 March 1711). The lyrics are the last stanza of a longer hymn, by Ken, "Awake, My Soul, and with the Sun." that was set to a different melody. A priest in the Church of England and later Bishop of Bath and Wells, he was imprisoned in the Tower of London for refusing to sign King James II's "Declaration of Indulgence," which was to restore Roman Catholicism in England, he was acquitted.

Isaac Watts credited with the 2d and 3d verses (17 July 1674 – 25 November 1748) recognised as the "Father of English Hymnody", credited with some 750 hymns. Many of which remain in active use today. Besides being a famous hymn-writer, Isaac Watts was also a renowned theologian and logician, writing many books and essays on these subjects.

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flowMusic: "Old 100th" from Fourscore and Seven Psalms of David (Geneva Switzerland: 1551); attributed to Louis Bourgeois (1510 - 1561) who was a follower of John Calvin. He edited the Geneva Psalter and was jailed for altering the melodies. The "Old 100th" got its name from association with lyrics called, "All People that on Earth Do Dwell" a reflection on Psalm 100.

Praise God from whom all bless-ings flow;
Praise Him all crea-tures here be-low;
Praise Him a-bove ye heav’n-ly host;
Praise Fa-ther, Son and Ho-ly Ghost.

From all that dwell be-low the skies;
Let the Cre-a-tor’s praise a-rise!
Let the Re-deem-er’s name be sung;
Through ev-‘ry land by ev-‘ry tongue.

E-ter-nal are Thy mer-cies Lord;
And Truth E-ter-nal is Thy Word;
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore;
Till suns shall rise and set no more.

Praise Him all crea-tures here be-low;
