Let All On Erath Their Voices Raise

Representative Text

1 Let all on earth their voices raise,
Resounding heav'n's joyful praise
To God, who gave the apostles grace
To run on earth their glorious race.

2 Lord, at your word they bore the light
Of gospel truth to darkest night,
To us that heav'nly light impart;
Make glad our eyes and cheer our heart.

3 Lord, by your will to them was giv'n
To bind and loose in earth and heav'n.
Our chains unbind, our sins undo,
And in our hearts your grace renew.

4 Lord, in your might they spoke the word
Which cured disease and health restored.
To us its healing pow'r prolong;
Support the weak, confirm the strong.

5 And when the thrones are set on high
And judgment's awesome hour draws nigh,
Then, Lord, with them pronounce us blest,
And take us to your endless rest.
