God of Might, We Praise Thy Name

Representative Text

1 God of might, we praise Thy name
For Thy deeds of strength and glory,
Heav’n and earth extol Thy fame,
And proclaim the blessed story;
As Thou art, Thou e’er wilt be
Unto all eternity.

2 Cherubim and seraphim
Praise Thy name with joy unceasing;
Prophets and apostles are
Evermore Thy praise increasing,
And the martyrs, brave and true,
Worship Thee with praises new.

3 All Thy Church in ev’ry land
Lifts its voice in adoration
Unto Thee, O God of Love,
For Thy work of man’s salvation;
Thou art King of Life and Love
In Thy heav’nly realms above.

4 Look upon Thy children here
Who, their love for Thee professing,
And in Jesus’ name alone,
Ask of Thee a Father’s blessing;
When the course of life is o’er,
Bring us home forevermore.
