Alternate Tune:


From all that dwell be­low the skies,
Let the Cre­at­or’s praise arise;
Let the Re­deem­er’s name be sung,
Through ev­ery land, by ev­ery tongue.

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.

Your lof­ty themes, ye mor­tals, bring,
In songs of praise di­vin­ely sing;
The great sal­va­tion loud pro­claim,
And shout for joy the Sav­ior’s name.

In ev­ery land be­gin the song;
To ev­ery land the strains be­long;
In cheer­ful sounds all voic­es raise,
And fill the world with loud­est praise.
