Representative Text

1 Come, let us all with gladness raise
a joyous song of thanks and praise
to God who rules the heav'nly host,
God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

2 For God, in grace and tenderness,
regarded us in our distress;
yea, to our aid himself he came;
let all adore God's holy name.

3 God gave us faithful ones to lead
and help us in our time of need;
but, Lord, all pow'r is yours alone,
and you the work must carry on.

4 Father in heaven, fulfill your word;
grant us the Spirit of our Lord,
that through your truth, which cannot fail,
we may o’er ev'ry ill prevail.

5 And in your love may we abide,
estranged from none by wrath or pride,
among ourselves at unity
and with all else in charity.

6 Thus may our lips your praises sound,
our hearts in steadfast hope abound;
till you to heaven our steps shall bring
where saints and angels hail you King.
