1 Sing to the Lord, who loud proclaims
His various, and his saving names;
O may they not be heard alone,
But by our sure experience known!
2 Let great Jehovah be adored,
Th' eternal, all-sufficient Lord;
He through the world most high confessed,
By whom 'twas formed and is possessed.
3 Awake, our noblest powers, to bless
The God of Abreham, God of Peace;
Now by a dearer title known,
Father and God of Christ his Son.
4 Through every age his gracious ear
Is open to his servants' prayer;
Nor can one humble soul complain,
That it hath sought its God in vain.
5 What unbelieving heart shall dare,
In whispers to suggest a fear?
While still he owns his ancient name,
The same his power, his love the same.
6 To thee our souls in faith arise,
To thee we lift expecting eyes;
And boldly through the desert tread,
For God will guard, where God shall lead.
