We bless Thy holy name,
Thou who canst save from shame,
Thee we adore;
Let all the people sing;
Loud let Thy praises ring,
Thou art our God and king
For evermore!

Thou art our life and light,
Dispelling all our night,
With mercy free;
We bow before Thy throne,
Thy sovereignty we own;
Since Thou art God alone,
We come to Thee.

Accept our grateful praise,
Guide us in wisdom’s ways,
Almighty Friend;
Our zeal and strength renew,
Help us our work to do,
With loving hearts and true,
Till time shall end.

When earthly tasks are o’er,
On Canaan’s shining shore
How sweet ’twill be,
’Mid scenes of pure delight,
Where sin can never blight,
To share Thy glory bright,
