1Angel voices ever singing
Round Thy throne of light,
Angel harps forever ringing
Rest not, day nor night;
Thousands only live to bless Thee,
And confess Thee
Lord of might!
2Thou, Who art beyond the farthest
Mortal eye can scan–
Can it be that Thou regardest
Songs of sinful man?
Can we know that Thou art near us,
And wilt hear us?
Yea! We can.
3Yea! We know that Thou rejoicest
O’er each work of Thine;
Thou didst ears and hands and voices
For Thy praise design;
Craftsman’s art and music’s measure
For Thy pleasure
All combine.
4In Thy house, great God, we offer
Of Thine own to Thee;
And for Thine acceptance proffer,
All unworthily,
Hearts and minds, and hands and voices,
In our choicest
Psalmody.
5Honor, glory, might, and merit,
Thine shall ever be!
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Blessèd Trinity!
Of the best that Thou hast given,
Earth and heaven
Render Thee. Amen.
