Men and child­ren ev­ery­where,
With sweet mu­sic fill the air!
Nations, come, your voic­es raise
To the Lord in hymns of praise!
Join the an­gel song,
All the worlds to Him be­long!


Holy, holy,
To our God all glo­ry be!

Morning, ev­en­ing, bless His name,
Skies with crim­son clouds aflame,
Rainbow arch, His co­ve­nant sign,
Countless stars by night that shine!
Through His far do­main,
Love is king where He doth reign!


Storm and flood and ocean’s roar,
Breakers crash­ing on the shore,
Waterfalls that ne­ver sleep,
Towering mount­ain, can­yon deep,
Tell ye forth His might,
Lord of life and truth and right!
