From all that dwell below the skies
Let the Creator's praise arise ;

Through every land, by every tongue !

Eternal truth attends Thy word :
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
Till suns shall rise and set no more.

Her sweet communion, solemn vows,

Her hymns of love and praise.—T. Dwight.
