To God, ye choir above, begin a hymn

Author: Philip Skelton
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 To God, ye choir above, begin
A hymn so loud and strong,
That all the universe may hear,
And join the grateful song.

2 Sing him, ye distant worlds and suns,
From whence no traveling ray
Hath yet to us, through ages past,
Had time to make its way.

3 Whate'er ye are, where'er ye dwell,
Ye creatures great and small,
Adore the wisdom, praise the power,
That made and governs all.

4 From all the boundless realms of space,
Let loud hosannas sound;
Loud send, ye wondrous works of God,
The grateful concert round.
