Representative Text

1 Lord, may our hearts be tuned to sing
Thy great and everlasting praise,
Our willing hands an offering bring
To thee on this the chief of days.

2 Great God, thy goodness we adore,
Help us to sing thy boundless love,
Own thee as God forevermore,
And swell thy praise in realms above.

3 Our sacred vows we now renew,
Our lives afresh to thee devote;
Help us to keep each promise true,
And seek thy glory to promote.

Amen.
