Subject(s): Singing & Singers; Songs

SING a song of joy!
Praise our God with mirth!
His flock who can destroy?
Is He not Lord of Heaven and earth?

Sing we then secure,
Tuning well our strings!
With voice, as echo pure,
Let us renown the King of Kings!

First who taught the day
From the East to rise?
Whom doth the sun obey
When in the seas his glory dies?

He the stars directs
That in order stand:
Who heaven and earth protects
But He that framed them with His hand?

Angels round attend,
Waiting on His will;
Armed millions He doth send
To aid the good or plague the ill.

All that dread His name,
And His 'hests observe,
His arm will shield from shame:
Their steps from truth shall never swerve.

Let us then rejoice,
Sounding loud His praise:
So will He hear our voice
And bless on earth our peaceful days.
