254. Songs of Praise the Angels Sang

1 Songs of praise the angels sang,
heaven with hallelujahs rang,
when creation was begun,
when God spoke 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 will people silent be
till that glorious day they see?
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,
blessed God, to you we raise.
Jesus, Saviour, Living Word,
with the Spirit be adored.
