4 God is our strength and song,
5 Stand up, and bless the Lord; And His salvation ours;
The Lord your God adore; Then be His love in Christ proclaimed Stand up, and bless His glorious Name, With all our ransomed powers.
Henceforth for evermore. 86

Ten thousand thousand are their tongues, But all their joys are
1. Be - fore Je - ho-vab's aw-ful throne, Ye na-tions, bow with sa 2. His sov'reign pow'r without our aid, Made us of clay, and formed us men; 3. We are His peo- ple, we His care, Our souls and all our mor- tal frame;
Know that the Lord is God a - lone, He can cre- ate, and He de-stroy. And when like wand'ring sheep we strayed, He bro't us to His fold a-gain.
When last-ing hon-ors shall we rear, Almight-y Mak-er to Thy name. A-men.
4 We'll crowd Thy gates with thankful songs,
High as the heavens our voices raise;
Shall fill Thy courts with sounding praise,
5 Wide as the world is Thy command,
Vast as eternity Thy love;
When rolling years shall cease to move.

the mid-night clear, That glo - rious song of old, 2. Still thro' the clo - ven skies they come, With peace-ful wings un - furled, 3. And ye, be - neath life's crushing load, Whose forms are bend-ing low, 4. For lo, the days are hastening on, By proph-et bards fore - told,
From an - gels bend-ing near the earth To touch their harps of
ry Who toil a long the climb - ing way With pain - ful steps and When with the
circ - ling years Comes round the age of
gold: world : slow,gold;
“Peace on the earth, good-will to men From heav'n's all-gra-cious King:'
A-bove its sad and 'low - ly plains They bend on hov-'ring wing, Look now! for glad and gold - en hours Come swift - ly the wing: When peace shall o
all the earth Its cient splen-dors iling,
The world in 201-emn still-ness lay, To hear the an-gels sing.
O restbe - side the wea ry road, And hear the an - gels sing.

1. Joy to the world! the Lord is
Let earth re-ceive her King; 2. Joy to the earth; the Sav- iour reigns; Let men their songs em-ploy; 3. No more let sins and sor - rows grow, Nor thorns in - fest the ground; 4. He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the na- tions prove
