1 Let all on earth their voices raise,
Resounding heaven's joyful praise
To God who gave the Apostles grace
To run o earth their glorious race.
2 Lord, at whose word they bore the light
Of gospel truth to darkest night,
To us that heavenly light impart,
Make glad our eyes and cheer our heart.
3 Lord, at whose will to them was giv'n
To bind and loose in earth and heaven,
Our chains unbind, our sins undo,
And in our hearts your grace renew.
4 Lord, in whose might they spoke the word
Which cured disease and health restored,
To us its healing pow'r prolong,
Support the weak, confirm the strong.
5 And when the thrones are set on high,
And judgment's awesome hour draws nigh,
Then, Lord, with them pronounce us blest,
And take us to your endless rest.
