O come let us lift up our voice

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O Come let us lift up our voice,
and sing unto the Lord;
In him our rock of health rejoice
let us with one accord:

2 Yea, let us come before his face
to give him thanks and praise
In singing psalms unto his grace
let us be glad always.

3 For why? the Lord he is no doubt
a great and mighty God!
A King above all gods throughout,
in all, the world abroad.

4 The secrets of the earth so deep,
and corners of the land,
The tops of hills that are most steep,
he holds them in his hand:

5 The sea and waters all are his,
for he the same hath wrought:
The earth and all that therein is
his band hath made of nought.

6 Come, let us bow and praise the Lord,
before him let us fall,
And kneel to him with one accord,
for he hath made us all.

7 For why? he is the Lord our God,
for us he doth provide;
We are his flock, he doth us feed,
his sheep, and he our guide.

8 To-day if ye his voice will hear,
then harden not your heart,
As ye with grudging many a year
provoked him in desert;

9 Whereas your fathers tempted me,
my power for to prove;
My wondrous works when they did see,
yet still they would me move.

10 Twice twenty years they did me grieve,
which caus-ed me to say,
They err in heart, nor will believe,
they have not known my way.

11 Wherefore I sware, when that my wrath
was kindled in my breast
That they should never tread the path
to enter in my rest.
