520. You servants of God, your master proclaim

1 You servants of God, your master proclaim,
and publish abroad his wonderful name;
the name all-victorious of Jesus extol,
his kingdom is glorious, and rules over all.

2 God rules in the height, almighty to save —
though hid from our sight, his presence we have;
the great congregation his triumph shall sing,
ascribing salvation to Jesus our king.

3 'Salvation to God who sits on the throne!'
let all cry aloud, and honour the Son;
the praises of Jesus the angels proclaim,
fall down on their faces and worship the Lamb.

4 Then let us adore and give him his right:
all glory and power, all wisdom and might,
all honour and blessing - with angels above —
and thanks never ceasing, and infinite love.
