o Sounded through the wide creation, Be thy just, exalted praise.
g 3 For the grandeur of thy natureGrand beyond a seraph's thoughtFor created works of power,
Works with skill and kindness wrought.
4 For thy providence that governs, Through thine empire's wide domain ; e Wings an angel-guides a sparrowBlessed be thy gentle reign.

Should my tongue refuse to praise. 8 From the highest throne in glory, To the cross of deepest woeAll to ransom guilty captives! Flow, my praise, forever flow. o 9 Go, return, immortal Saviour; Leave thy footstool, take thy throne: g Thence return, and reign forever; Be the kingdom all thine own. Hallelujah, &c.

Shall all our sins destroy, And every bosom swell,
With pure seraphic joy; o Lift up the heart, lift up the voice, Rejoice aloud, ye saints, rejoice.

g We soon shall hear th' archangel's voice: The trump of God shall sound-rejoice!
