Praise To the Lamb

Not unto us but thee alone

Author: John Cennick
Published in 33 hymnals

Full Text

1 Not unto us, but thee alone,
Blest Lamb, be glory given!
Here shall thy praises be begun,
And carried on in Heaven.

2 The host of spirits now with thee,
Eternal anthems sing:
To imitate them here, lo! we,
Our Hallelujahs bring.

3 Had we our tongues like them inspir'd,
Like theirs our songs shou'd rise;
Like them we never should be tir'd,
But love the sacrifice.

4 'Till we the veil of flesh lay down,
Accept our weaker lays;
And when we reach thy father's throne
We'll give thee nobler praise.

Author: John Cennick

John Cennick was born at Reading, Berkshire, in the year 1717. He became acquainted with Wesley and Whitefield, and preached in the Methodist connection. On the separation of Wesley and Whitefield he joined the latter. In 1745, he attached himself to the Moravians, and made a tour in Germany to fully acquaint himself with the Moravian doctrines. He afterwards ministered in Dublin, and in the north of Ireland. He died in London, in 1755, and was buried in the Moravian Cemetery, Chelsea. He was the author of many hymns, some of which are to be found in every collection. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >
