Full Text

1 Sons of Adam! join to raise
Songs of gratitude and praise.
Emulate the choirs above;
Celebrate eternal love.

2 Endless ages saw the scheme;
Endless ages sang the theme:
Man, in God's own image made,
Honour, glory on his head.

3 Ratur'd, all the sons of light
Hail'd the moment, mercy-bright,
When to Jesus, Lord from heav'n,
Thus the glorious charge was giv'n:

4 "Go, proclaim Jehovah's grace;
Fear destroy, and guilt efface;
Conquer death, unbar the grave:
Lo! thy work—the world to save."

5 Speak your pleasures, happy race,
Objects of your Father's grace!
All the family of earth
Glory in your Saviour's birth!
