1 Praise to God who reigns above,
Binding earth and heaven in love;
All the armies of the sky
Worship His dread sovereignty.
2 Seraphim His praises sing,
Cherubim on fourfold wing,
Thrones, Dominions, Princes, Powers,
Ranks of Might that never cowers.
3 Angel hosts His word fulfil,
Ruling nature by His will;
Round His throne Archangels pour
Songs of praise for evermore.
4 Yet on man they joy to wait,
All that bright celestial state,
For true Man their Lord they see,
Christ, the Incarnate Deity.
6 On the Throne our Lord Who died
Sits in manhood glorified,
Where His people faint below
Angels count it joy to go.
