2 Eternal are Thy mercies, Lord;
Eternal truth attends Thy word:

Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore
Till suns shall rise and set no more.

2 How surely stablished is Thy throne,
Which shall no change or period see!
For Thou, O Lord, and Thou alone,
Art God from all eternity.

4 We'll crowd Thy gates with thankful songs,

High as the heavens our voices raise; And earth, with her ten thousand tongues, Shall fill Thy courts with sounding praise.

5 Wide as the world is Thy command,

Vast as eternity Thy love;
Firm as a rock Thy truth must stand,

When rolling years shall cease to move. 1705, 1719: verse 1, lines 1, 2, alt. by Rev. John Wesley

3 Come, worship at His throne;
Come, bow before the Lord:
We are His works, and not our own;
He formed us by His Word.

4 To-day attend His voice,

Nor dare provoke His rod;
Come, like the people of His choice,
And own your gracious God.

1 Songs of praise the angels sang,
Heaven with alleluias rang,
When Jehovah's work begun,
When He spake, and it was done.

2 Songs of praise awoke the morn, When the Prince of Peace was born: Songs of praise arose, when He Captive led captivity.

Arr. by John B. Wilkes, 1861

3 Heaven and earth must pass away, Songs of praise shall crown that day: God will make new heavens, new earth, Songs of praise shall hail their birth.

Psalm cxxxvi. John Milton, 1624: alt.

4 And can man alone be dumb,
Till that glorious kingdom come?
No, the Church delights to raise
Psalms and hymns and songs of praise.

5 Saints below, with heart and voice, Still in songs of praise rejoice, Learning here, by faith and love, Songs of praise to sing above.

6 Borne upon their latest breath,
Songs of praise shall conquer death;
Then, amidst eternal joy,
Songs of praise their powers employ.
