Ada J. Blenkhorn (1858–1927)


Sing His praise, joy­ful praise,
Glorify His name;
Now re­joice, heart and voice,
Telling forth His fame;
Holy Dove, Prince of Love,
Once for us was slain;
Now He lives, now He lives,
Evermore to reign.


Glory! Glory! Hal­le­lu­jah!
Sound His praise
Who once for us was slain;
Glory! Glory! Hal­le­lu­jah!
Jesus liv­eth, ev­er­more to reign!

Prince of Peace, great in­crease
Of His throne shall be;
Righteousness, ho­li­ness,
Spread from sea to sea;
Age on age shall en­gage
To ex­alt our king;
Earth and sky, earth and sky
With His praise shall ring.


Some glad day, hap­py day,
We shall see our Lord;
Glory share with Him there,
Saith His ho­ly Word;
Give Him praise end­less days
On that gold­en shore,
With our Lord, with our Lord
Dwell for­ev­er­more.
