Author: Christopher Idle (born 1938) Hymnal: Hymns for Today's Church (2nd ed.) #16 (1987) Hymnal Title: Hymns for Today's Church (2nd ed.) Lyrics: 1 Come with all joy to sing to God
our saving rock, the living Lord;
in glad thanksgiving seek his face
with songs of victory and grace.
2 In holiness and light arrayed
above all gods that we have made,
he is the one almighty king,
and his the glory that we sing.
3 The earth is his from east to west,
from ocean-floor to mountain-crest;
he made the sea and formed the lands,
he shaped the islands by his hands.
4 Come near to worship! Come with faith,
bow down to him who gives us breath:
God is our shepherd, he alone;
we are his people, all his own.
5 But if you hear God's voice today
do not reject what he will say;
when Israel wandered from God's path
they suffered forty years of wrath.
6 That generation went astray;
they did not want to know his way:
they put their saviour to the test,
and saw his power, but lost their rest.
7 So to the God of earth and heaven,
the Father, Spirit, Son, be given
praise now, as praise has ever been
and ever shall be praise — Amen!
