Lord God, to you our hearts we raise

Representative Text

1 Lord God, to you we all give praise,
To you with joy our thanks we raise
For angel multitudes that shine
In your great throne room crystalline.

2 From them flow light and heav'nly grace
Reflecting splendors of your face.
They heed your voice, they know it well,
In godly wisdom they excel.

3 They never rest nor sleep as we;
Their whole delight is but to be
With you, Lord Jesus, and to keep
Your little flock, your lambs and sheep.

4 Increase, we plead, our song of praise
For angel hosts that guard our days;
Teach us to ceaselessly adore,
To serve as they do evermore.
