1 Before the Throne of God above
The glorious angels stand;
Their only wish, their only joy,
To do their Lord's command.
2 Some ever bow before His face,
And praise Him all day long,
And sing in never-ending strains
Their blessed joyous song.
3 These holy Angels never choose,
And never wish nor ask
For other work than what God gives
To be their daily task.
4 And we must like the Angels be--
Not choosing good or ill,
But humbly striving day by day
To do God's only will.
Amen.Source: Voices of Praise: for school and church and home #296
