782. Songs of praise the angels sang

1 Songs of praise the angels sang,
heaven with alleluias rang,
when creation was begun,
when God spake and it was done.

2 Songs of praise awoke the morn
when the Prince of peace was born;
songs of praise arose when he
captive led captivity.

3 Heaven and earth must pass away;
songs of praise shall crown that day:
God will make new heavens and earth;
songs of praise shall hail their birth.

4 And shall we alone be dumb
till that glorious kingdom come?
No, the church delights to raise
psalms and hymns and songs of praise.

5 Saints below, with heart and voice,
still in songs of praise rejoice;
learning here, by faith and love,
songs of praise to sing above.

6 Hymns of glory, songs of praise,
Father, unto thee we raise,
Jesu, glory unto thee,
with the Spirit, ever be.
