Representative Text

1 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow,
Whose goodness crowns the varied year;
Whole nature's works his bounty show,
Let gratitude salute him here;
Swell, gently swell, the solemn song,
Now pour the bounding notes along,
Teach choirs below, to choirs above,
To echo back the common lay
And, as they praise unbounded love,
To join in bounty's holiday.
To God the universal King
Be sacred every grateful choir!
In ceaseless hymns, all praises sing,
That endless bounty can inspire!

2 All lost, beneath stern winter's reign,
Creation's genial powers appear'd,
Spring call'd them into life again,
See, budding verdure shews they heard;
Bless, bless, O man! the kind design,
Whose nobler counter-part is thine!
Thy powers a glooomier winter froze,
Till thy Messiah's cheering ray,
Prolifick of fair truth, arose,
And shed the blaze of mental day.
To God the universal King
Be sacred every grateful choir!
In ceaseless hymns, all praises sing,
That endless bounty can inspire!

3 All spotless, as the truth he taught,
Free, as the mercy he display'd,
He shew'd what human duty ought,
He did what heavenly goodness bade;
Enforc'd each just command he gave,
Nor liv'd nor dy'd, in vain to save.
Praise God, whose heavenly mercy sent
His Son to save a sinful race,
Let ev''ry heart with one consent
Adore the free, the wond'rous grace.
To God the universal King,
Be sacred every grateful choir!
In ceaseless hymns all praises sing,
That endless mercy can inspire!
