1 O sing to the Lord with a psalm of thanksgiving,
For great is His wisdom, and great is His love;
Your voices raise heavenward, that angels in glory
May join in our chorus, and sing it above.
O sing unto Jesus, the Ancient of Days;
Rejoice, while our song of thanksgiving we raise.
2 As brothers in Christ we are banded together,
New light and new life to receive from His love;
May God’s Holy Spirit, the heavenly Revealer,
Illumine our hearts with His truth from above. [Refrain]
3 Then sing to the Lord, for the Lord’s name is glorious,
Each voice be uplifted to join in the strain,
Till all things on earth shall re-echo in chorus
Our song of thanksgiving again and again. [Refrain]
Godfrey Thring (b. Alford, Somersetshire, England, 1823; d. Shamley Green, Guilford, Surrey, England, 1903) was born in the parsonage of Alford, where his father was rector. Educated at Balliol College, Oxford, England, he was ordained a priest in the Church of England in 1847. After serving in several other parishes, Thring returned to Alford and Hornblotten in 1858 to succeed his father as rector, a position he retained until his own retirement in 1893. He was also associated with Wells Cathedral (1867-1893). After 1861 Thring wrote many hymns and published several hymnals, including Hymns Congregational (1866), Hymns and Sacred Lyrics (1874), and the respected A Church of England Hymn Book Adapted to the Daily Services of the Church… Go to person page >
