1 Beloved brethren, sing his praise
Who formed the worlds on high,
Who taught the planets where to trace
Their orbits in the sky.
2 Swift heralds the glad news to bear
O'er land and ocean fly,
And to the wondering world declare
The message from on high.
3 In songs declare the works and ways
Of our eternal God,
Whose kingdom, in these latter days,
Is spreading far abroad.
4 In Zion let his name be praised
Who hath a feast prepared,
The glorious gospel standard raised,
The ancient faith restored.
