1 Stand up and bless the Lord,
all people now rejoice:
stand up and bless the Lord your God
with heart and soul and voice.
2 Though high above all praise,
above all blessing high,
who would not fear his holy name,
give thanks and glorify?
3 O for the living flame
from his own altar brought,
to touch our lips, our minds inspire,
and wing to heaven our thought!
4 God is our strength and song,
and his salvation ours;
then be his love in Christ proclaimed
with all our ransomed powers.
5 Stand up and bless the Lord,
the Lord your God adore;
stand up and bless his glorious name,
both now and evermore.
