1 The servants of Jehovah's will
His favour's gentle beams enjoy;
Their upright hearts let gladness fill,
And cheerful songs their tongues employ.
2 To Him your voice in anthems raise,
Jehovah's awful name He bears;
In Him rejoice, extol His praise,
Who rides upon high-rolling spheres.
3 His chariots numberless, His powers
Are heavenly hosts, that wait His will;
His presence now fills Sion's towers,
As once it honour'd Sinai's hill.
4 Ascending high, in triumph Thou
Captivity hast captive led,
And on Thy people didst bestow
Thy gifts and graces freely shed.
Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871
