Ada J. Blenkhorn (1858–1927)


In hymns of praise your voices raise
To Him who reigns on high;
Whose counsels keep the mighty deep,
Who ruleth earth and sky.


Exalt His name in loud acclaim!
His mighty power adore!
And humbly bow before Him now,
Our king for­ev­er­more.

Beneath His hand, at His command,
The shining planets move;
To all below they daily show
His wisdom and His love.


The little flower that lasts an hour,
The sparrow in its fall;
They, too, shall share His tender care,
He made and loves them all.


Then sing again in lofty strain
To Him who dwells on high;
To prayers you raise, and songs of praise,
He sweetly will reply.
