Song of Praise

Now unto thee, the high and

Representative Text

1 Now unto thee, the high and
holy, holy, holy,
Pow'r and dominion all the world ascribe;
thou, God, shalt reign supreme.

Far away, far away
o'er the battlements of heaven rise
Songs of joy, heav'nly joy,
Ringing thro' the portals of the skies;
"Glory ever be unto Christ our King,
Whom the hosts of heav'n adore;
Glory ever be unto Christ our King,
Forever, evermore!"

2 Hearts now with rapture full are
swelling, swelling, swelling,
Praising the God of our salvation
who our lost souls did redeem. [Chorus]

3 Angels and men thy love are
telling, telling, telling,
Jesus to save our souls from endless death,
in love the cross hath borne. [Chorus]

4 Thy glory all the earth is
filling, filling, filling
O haste the day when all the world shall see the
dawn of love's bright morn. [Chorus]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
