Representative Text

1 Praise ye the Name of Jehovah our God;
Declare, oh! declare ye His glories abroad;
Proclaim ye His mercy from nation to nation;
Till islands remotest have head His salvation.

For His love floweth on, free and full as a river,
And His mercy endureth forever and ever,
And His mercy endureth forever,
And His mercy endureth forever,
And His mercy endureth forever, forever and ever.

2 Praise ye the Lamb who for sinners was slain,
Went down to the grave, and ascended again;
Who soon shall return, when these dark days are over;
To set up His kingdom, in glory and power. [Refrain]

3 Then heaven and earth, and the sea shall rejoice;
The field and the forest shall lift their glad voice;
The sands in the desert shall flourish in green;
Then shall Lebanon’s glory be shed o’er the scene. [Refrain]

4 Her bridal attire, and her festal array,
All nature shall wear on that glorious day,
Her King cometh down, with His people to reign, and
His presence shall bless her with eden again. [Refrain]

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
