1 Now to the Lord a noble song,
awake, my soul, awake, my tongue!
Hosanna to the eternal name,
and all his boundless love proclaim!
2 See where it shines in Jesus' face,
the brightest image of his grace:
God in the person of his Son,
has all his mightiest works outdone.
3 The spacious earth, the oceans' flood,
proclaim the wise, the powerful God,
and your rich glories from afar
gleam bright in every rolling star.
4 But in his looks a glory stands,
the noblest labour of your hands:
the pleasing lustre of his eyes
outshines the wonders of the skies.
5 Grace: what a sweet, a charming theme!
My thoughts rejoice at Jesus' name:
all angels, dwell upon the sound,
and heav'ns, reflect it to the ground,
