Eternal God, celestial King,
Exalted be Thy glorious name;
Let hosts in Heav’n Thy praises sing,
And saints on earth Thy love proclaim!

Refrain

Awake, my tongue! awake, my lyre!
With morning’s earliest dawn arise,
To songs of joy my soul inspire,
And swell your music to the skies!

My heart is fixed on Thee, my God;
I rest my hope on Thee alone;
I’ll spread Thy sacred truths abroad;
To all mankind Thy love make known.

Refrain

With those who in Thy grace abound,
To Thee I’ll raise my thankful voice
Till every land the earth around
Shall hear, and in Thy name rejoice.
