Representative Text

1 Unto ev’ry land and nation,
Unto all the wide creation,
Send the hymn of adoration,
Happy song of grateful praise.

Then praise Him, praise Him,
Glory be to God on high!
Then praise Him, praise Him,
Sound His name in earth and sky;
Yes, praise Him, praise Him,
Sing until the whole world rings;
O praise Him, praise Him,
Christ the Lord, the King of kings.

2 Let a world by sorrow blighted,
Look to skies with glory lighted;
Let all people, thus united,
Raise a song of grateful praise. [Refrain]

3 Set the joyous chorus pealing,
Send the farthest echoes stealing,
His redeeming grace revealing,
In a song of grateful praise. [Refrain]
