1 Songs of praise the angels sang,
Heav'n with hallelujas rang
When Jehovah's work begun,
When He 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 heav'ns and earth;
Songs of praise shall hail their birth.
4 And shall man 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.
