Representative Text

1 Let every creature join
To bless Jehovah's name,
And every power unite..
To swell th'exalted theme;
Let nature raise,
From every tongue,
A general song
Of grateful praise.

2 But oh, from human tongues
Should nobler praises flow,
And every thankful heart
With warm devotion glow:
Your voices raise,
Ye highly blest;
Above the rest
Declare His praise.

3 Assist me, gracious God;
My heart, my voice inspire;
Then shall I humbly join
the universal choir;
Thy grace can raise
My heart and tongue,
And tune my song
To lively praise.

Amen.
