1Come, sound His praise abroad,
And hymns of glory sing;
Jehovah is the sovereign God,
The universal King.
2He formed the deeps unknown;
He gave the seas their bound;
The watery worlds are all His own,
And all the solid ground.
3Come, worship at His throne;
Come, bow before the Lord;
We are His works, and not our own;
He formed us by His word.
4Today attend His voice,
Nor dare provoke His rod;
Come, as the people of His choice,
And own your gracious God. Amen.
