1My God, my King,
Thy praise I sing,
My heart is all Thine own;
My highest powers,
My choicest hours,
I yield to Thee alone.
2My voice awake,
Thy part to take;
My soul, the concert join;
Till all around
Shall catch the sound,
And mix their hymns with mine.
3But man is weak
Thy praise to speak;
Your God, ye angels, sing;
’Tis yours to see,
More near than we,
The glories of our King.
4His truth and grace
Fill time and space;
As large His honors be
Till all that live
Their homage give,
And praise my God with me.
