Representative Text

1 Let great Jehovah animate our strains;
To him yon spacious firmament pertains;
High 'bove yon starry heav'ns he reigns supreme;
Yon starry heav'ns his boundless pow'r proclaim.
2 His glorious deeds in tuneful numbers sing;
Display the majesty of heav'n's high king;
3 With it's shrill clangor bid the trumpet join
The lute, the psalt'ry, harmony divine!
4 With timbrels bid the virgins all advance,
To celebrate his glory in the dance;
While sprightly viols sweetly play around,
And solemn organs give a deeper sound:
5 Let the sonorous cymbals speak his praise;
In concert, all, your grateful voices raise;
Yes, all that breathe this vital air, accord
With one consenting voice, to hymn the LORD.
